This interactive online course will teach effective strategies to reduce radiation exposure. The course begins with the basic physics of fluoroscopic technology and definitions of common terms used to describe radiation exposure. Faculty will review the biologic effects and risks of radiation exposure, and will provide a description of protective equipment for both providers and patients. Radiation reduction strategies for the patient and practitioners are also addressed and two procedures will be described from the perspective of radiation reduction techniques: transforaminal epidural steroid injection and percutaneous pedicle screws. This course is self-paced and will take up to two hours to complete.
