Radiation Protection of Patients in FGI

April 26, 2022 | 18:00 CEST



The programme of this webinar will cover patient dose reduction strategies, patient dose management, and risk communication strategies. The webinar includes presentations from medical experts (one presentation will be delivered by a radiologist, one by a radiographer and one by a medical physicist), online assessments, and a live Q&A discussion (based on audience questions). It is aimed at radiologists, radiographers, and medical physicists who want to improve their skills in: 

  • Radiation protection of patients and optimisation in fluoroscopically guided interventional procedures
  • Communicating radiation risks to patients  



After watching the webinar, participants will be able to: 

    • To consider dose management in FGI including both stochastic and tissue reactions with associated trigger levels 
    • To review optimal strategies for patient dose optimisation 
    • To understand evidence-based risk communication strategies for informing patients of radiation risks
