Ionizing Radiation Safety Training Courses
X-Ray, Source & Accelerator Users

The ionizing radiation safety courses offered by High-Rez Diagnostics include, as a minimum, the topics for such training as stipulated by federal, state and local documents. Important topics from NCRP and other publications are presented and the results of the most recent Hiroshima/ Nagasaki survivors studies are also discussed. Dr. Hughes was the radiation physicist for 13 hospitals for several years and has assisted in the loading of a nuclear reactor. He thus has significant experience with a wide variety of x-ray equipment and nuclear sources/equipment. Dr. Hughes has provided ionizing radiation safety training classes for audiences nation-wide for the past 25 years and internationally for nine years.
