Lesson Description

When working with X-Ray technology in a laboratory setting, safety is a paramount concern. When properly used, X-Rays are considered relatively safe. However, when X-Rays are used without the proper safety precautions they have the potential to cause serious injury and illness related to over exposure; cancer, extreme low blood pressure, and cardiac arrest, are commonly attributed negative health consequences.

Because X-Rays are dangerous when handled improperly, it is imperative and  that students & faculty alike receive safety training for awareness and prevention.

The goal of this course is to ensure the safe use of X-Rays in campus laboratory settings.
