This course is designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals performing fluoroscopically guided procedures that only need two hours of fluoroscopic radiation safety training to compliment prior training.  The training is available on the AHEC’s website in two new narrated video presentations that total 2 hours CME. Physicians and other healthcare providers completing both parts of the course will receive a certificate of completion for 2 hours Category 1™ AMA PRA credit.
