Communicating Advances in Radiation Education for Shielding (CARES)
AAPM CARES is an engaged community of stakeholders committed to Communicating Advances in Radiation Education for Shielding (CARES).
Join the current conversations about the role of patient gonadal and fetal Shielding in Radiology. A set of six modules provide information about the history of patient gonadal and fetal shielding, the scientific basis for its widespread implementation in the 20th century, and the science behind recommneded current practice changes. Patient shielding will be discussed with the context of image quality and dose optimization in radiographic imaging, including patient positioning and collimation.
