RDG-252 - Radiation Protection and Biology

1 credits

This module is a continuation of RDG-101. Topics covered include ionizing radiation and x-ray energies. Interactions of radiation with matter and a review of the radiation units of measurement are studied. Dosimetry will cover NRC and NCRP requirements on effective dose equivalent limits, record keeping, monitoring, patient protection, and shielding requirements. Also, an introduction of the state regulation CMR 105 will be given and compared with the federal regulation. Includes a detailed examination of the effects of radiation on the cell, the systems, and the human being, including both long-term and short-term effects, somatic and genetic effects
