The protection in treatments and investigations with ionizing radiation

RADIATION PROTECTION OF PATIENTS

IEO Web Education proposes five second-level educational courses, available in Italian, to upgrade on the theme of the protection of patients in the exposure to ionizing radiation. Consists of five specialized courses, available separately, regarding diagnostic and therapeutic procedures which involve the use of ionizing radiation, carried out in diagnostic radiology, nuclear medicine, radiotherapy and radiological complementary activities (made ​​in the specialized non-radiological) at low and high doses.
At the end of the course you can get a certificate of attendance for each course benefited.

Introduction

The contents of the five courses meet the guidelines of an Italian Decree (Decreto della Direzione Generale Sanità della Regione Lombardia n. 6197 del 22/6/2010) for the implementation of mandatory training on the protection of individuals against the dangers of radiation ionizing relation to medical exposures. Italian Legislative Decree 187/2000 provides that the personnel who work in professional fields directly related to medical exposure must attend training courses every five years.

Course in technical-scientific updating: soon available again.

1 – Radioprotection of the patient during activities involving high-dose radiation

This course is devoted to the radioprotection of patients exposed to high doses of radiation. This occurs predominantly during cardiac interventions and involves the use of very complex, fixed equipment and the long periods of fluoroscopy and cineradiography, necessary in cardiology and haemodynamic studies.

  • Program:
  1. Basic notions of radioprotection
  2. Responsibilities and competences in the radioprotection of patients
  3. The dose delivered to patients
  4. Quality controls
  5. Physical and practical factors influencing the dose delivered to the patient.

 

2 – Radioprotection of the patient receiving radiotherapy

This course is devoted to the radioprotection of patients undergoing radiotherapy using modern techniques. Particular consideration is given to the new technologies for dose intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and controlling the position of the patient (image-guided radiotherapy; IGRT). Ample time is dedicated to the QUANTEC publications concerning dose constraints for organs at risk.

  • Program:

1.    Recall of the basic notions of radioprotection
2.    Radioprotection of the patient during IMRT
3.    Radioprotection of the patient during IGRT
4.    Dose constraints for organs at risk: the QUANTEC publications

 

3 – Radioprotection of the patient during activities involving low-dose radiation

This course is devoted to the radioprotection of patients exposed to low doses of radiation. This occurs predominantly in operating theatres during surgical interventions involving portable fluoroscopy equipment.

  • Program:

1.    Basic notions of radioprotection
2.    Responsibilities and competences in the radioprotection of patients
3.    Complementary activities involving low doses of radiation
4.    Quality controls
5.    Physical and practical factors influencing the dose delivered to the patient.

 

4 – Radioprotection of the patient undergoing diagnostic radiology

This course is devoted to the radioprotection of patients undergoing diagnostic radiology. It focuses particularly on the responsibilities and competences during the use of multislice CT, the radioprotection of children and patients undergoing digital mammography.

  • Program:

1.    Basic notions of radioprotection
2.    Responsibilities and competences in the radioprotection of patients
3.    Radioprotection during the use of multislice CT
4.    Radioprotection of children
5.    Radioprotection of patients undergoing digital mammography
6.    Effective dose in radiodiagnostics

 

5 – The radioprotection of the patient in nuclear medicine

This course is devoted to the radioprotection of patients in nuclear medicine. It focuses in particular on quality control of the radiopharmaceuticals, the use of new SPECT/CT and PET/CT technologies and dosimetry in metabolic  radiotherapy.

  • Program:

1.    Basic notions of radioprotection
2.    Responsibilities and competences in the radioprotection of patients
3.    Quality control of radiopharmaceuticals
4.    Radioprotection of the patient undergoing SPECT/CT and PET/CT
5.    Dosimetry in metabolic radiotherapy
