Patient exposure to radiation has doubled in 20 years, with patients potentially undergoing multiple studies and
scans over their lifetime. In response, the FDA has undertaken an initiative to reduce unnecessary radiation
exposure from medical imaging using the principle of “As Low As Reasonably Achievable,” (ALARA). Following this
principle, CMS requirements discusses safety precautions a hospital should do to decrease radiation exposure.
This program will cover all the hospital radiology and nuclear medicine standards requires for hospitals from CMS,
including 41 pages of changes that were enacted in 2015. Every hospital that accepts Medicare or Medicaid must
be in compliance with these regulations and interpretive guidelines.
Radiology Department Directors, Radiology Medical Directors, Radiology Staff, Patient Safety Officers, Risk
Managers, Compliance Officers, Regulatory Affairs Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Risk Management, CMOs,
Emergency Department Physicians, Clinic Physicians, Physicists, ED Staff, CNOs, Hospital Legal Counsel or any
