PREAMBLE

Radiotherapy is part of a way in treating cancerous cell. It used radioactive material which gives the benefit to patient’s life as malignant tissues can be minimize with external beam conducted in treatment. The usage of treatment must be in line with rules and regulation stated by Ministry of Health parallel with the requirement of Atomic Energy Licensing Act 1984. Any misuse or damage cn result in worst situation.

In this course, better understanding will be given upon the Awareness Copurse on Radiation Protection in Radiotherapy involving those whose circulate among this equipment which use radiation to minimalize cancer cells.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • To provide understanding of the philosophy and principle of radiation protection in nuclear medicine.
  • Familiarisation of equipment, protocols and methodology used in nuclear medicine procedures
  • Creating awareness on the radiation hazards, biological effects and risk of ionising radiation in nuclear medicine.
  • To generate the importance of the right working procedures in nuclear medicine.
  • To improve performance in the clinical aspects of nuclear medicine.
  • To enhance knowledge and skills in ways that can be immediately applied to the practice of nuclear medicine
