Did You Know....?

Due to the widespread use of radiation-producing machines and radioactive materials in medicine, the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) now reports that the average person in the United States receives approximately the same dose from medical radiation as from natural background radiation.


Those managing a radiation safety program or working with radioactive material and/or radiation-producing machines in a medical environment.

This course is intended for those working with both radioactive materials and X-ray producing equipment. If you are interested in learning primarily about X-ray safety, please see our Medical X-ray Safety class.
