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.
Low Dose Radiation Therapy (LDRT) for COVID-19: Benefits or Risks?
Report now available on the Workshop that was co-sponsored by NCRP, with the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, in July 2020. Published in Radiation Research, you can obtain the Report here
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.
