Slides and videos from the 2019 NCI Radiation Epidemiology and Dosimetry Course are now available online. The course was designed for people who are interested in learning about the health effects of radiation exposure – it covers the fundamentals of radiation epidemiology, dosimetry, and risk modeling as well as topical sessions which provide an overview of the methods and key findings from studies of medical, occupational, and environmental radiation exposures.
Virtual Workshop on Low Dose Radiation Therapy for COVID-19, July 23, 2020
NCRP, with NCI and NIAID, co-organized a virtual workshop on “Low Dose Radiation Therapy for COVID-19: Benefits or Risks?” held July 23, 2020. With clinical trials and preclinical studies underway, this was a timely discussion of the potential risks and benefits of using radiation to modulate the inflammatory/Immune response in lungs of COVID-19 patients.
Interested to know what distinguishes a well-designed and reliable radiation epidemiologic study from an unreliable, and a flawed one? CDC and NCRP produced eight brief video modules called Radiation Epidemiology for Public Health Decision Making that are informative and offer continuing education credits.
