MPE12 : Occupational dosimetry in diagnostic and interventional radiology: Personnel dosimetry and competences for MPE with RPE responsibilities

Can you plot the radiation field in a cath lab situation? Do you know how to assess the dose to the eye lens? Can you explain personnel dosimetry to a nurse?  Do you know which dosemeter to choose in which clinical setting?

These questions, and many more, will be answered in the EUTEMPE-RX module MPE12.

In clinical workplaces, personnel dosimetry legally needs to be applied to a target group that more often than not has little comprehension for its necessity or its correct application and works under conditions that significantly differ from lab conditions. Personnel dosimetry in clinical settings therefore offers three challenges: the dosimetry, the personnel and the clinical setting.

There are various approaches to deal with all of them and in the EUTEMPE-RX module MPE12 course you will get to know them. Say hello to your target group. Get a first-hand impression and insights into real-life clinical exposure situations and their specific challenges. Learn about the legal, epidemiological and technical backgrounds of occupational dosimetry, with a focus on high dose rate workplaces and their special characteristics.
