Radiological Physics Committee of The Nordic Association for Clinical Physics Course on Occupational Dosimetry in Hospitals

The Radiological Physics Committee (RPC) of The Nordic Association for Clinical Physics (NACP) is organizing a course on occupational dosimetry in hospitals from 27th to 29th September 2017.

The course is mainly aimed at medical physicists, but we also welcome clinicians, radiographers and other interested professions to join.

The radiation exposure to staff in cardiology, interventional radiology and nuclear medicine are of special interest as they are at risk of reaching the recommended annual dose limit set by the new European guidelines.

Topics of the course will include:

  • Dose monitoring
  • Dose limits - what research it is based on
  • Dosimetric quantities
  • Internal dosimetry and finger doses
  • Effect of protocol optimization on staff doses
  • Technical and clinical issues
  • Radiation biology
  •  Factors that influence staff doses

For more details and relevant information regarding the course including the final program, course fee, registration deadline, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points, social event etc., please review the following course website: http://nacp-2017-stockholm.webnode.se/
