This month’s journal-based CME article is titled "Health effects from occupational radiation exposure among fluoroscopy-guided interventional medical workers: a systematic review". In this article, the authors conduct a systematic review of the health effects of occupational radiation exposure from interventional fluoroscopic procedures on personnel (medical radiation workers).
To receive CME credit for this journal-based CME activity, participants must read the journal article and score 75% or better on the post test. Participants will have three opportunities to score 75% or better.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of all medical workers exposed to radiation during fluoroscopic procedures.
After participating in this journal-based CME activity, learners should be able to
List the type of cancer most commonly reported amongst personnel who work with radiation.
Name the approximate relative risk (RR) for developing posterior subcapsular opacities amongst interventional cardiologists.
Describe the analysis reported in the O'CLOCC study.
State the cardiovascular outcomes experienced by medical radiation workers, such as interventional radiologists.
