John Harvey, Ph.D., DABR, CHP , West Physics Director of National Technical Operations & Chief Medical/Health Physicist lecturing to 48 California Physicians and Technologists on Fluoroscopy Safety by Zoom to maintain Fluoroscopy certification. We’ve converted in person training to remote learning for our customers in order to maintain regulatory compliance during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Read what some of our customers had to say about our remote learning content and faculty:

“He is excellent at making what I consider a less than exciting subject, entertaining and informative.”

“Dr. Harvey presented in a straight forward and understandable way.”

“I have taken this course three times now. Every time I learn something new and important.”

Please check out the latest article on CT dose optimization in the September issue of HealthCare Business News magazine by our President & Chief Medical Physicist, Dr. Geoffrey West!

In this article, Dr. West addresses the evolving requirements surrounding CT dose optimization, and how facilities are addressing the challenges. He also provides valuable advice for healthcare organizations who are building out their patient dose reduction initiatives;all based on West Physics’ industry-leading experiences with helping hospitals and imaging centers build and maintain their own programs!

State of Washington proposes inadequate medical physicist credentialing standards for CT.

After a careful review of Washington’s recently-proposed new CT imaging regulations (Chapter 246-226 WAC -http://www.doh.wa.gov/Portals/1/Documents/4100/OTS-6783.7_CT_7-22-16.pdf ), the West Physics technical staff was extremely disappointed to find the medical physicist credentialing standards permit individuals with no formal education or training in physics to conduct CT physics activities in the state. The “grandfathering” provision inserted into the regulations (WAC 246-226-065(3) permits any individual who has performed only 3 CT surveys in the last 3 years to continue providing these surveys, as well as more advanced CT dose optimization and protocol review services, in perpetuity. No supervision by a board-certified diagnostic medical physicist is required, either for the 3 previously-performed surveys, or for future surveys; nor is any mechanism in place to verify that the 3 CT surveys already performed were done properly. This credentialing standard loophole, while serving to protect a handful of consultants in the state, unfortunately does not adequately assure the expertise of CT physics activities and thereby protect the citizens of the state undergoing CT scans, and the facilities performing those scans. West Physics strongly opposes this provision and asks the state regulatory staff to carefully consider either eliminating it entirely, or putting additional safeguards in place to ensure appropriate education, training and supervision of those individuals conducting this increasingly complex and sophisticated testing.

Given that state regulations get updated infrequently, and often become the basis of other modality or state regulations, we encourage other graduate-degreed and/or board-certified diagnostic medical physicists both in Washington and around the U.S. to comment on the proposed regulations prior to the September 7 deadline, and to attend the public hearing on that date, even if they do not practice in the State of Washington. State issues have national ramifications we believe that this type of provision sets a dangerous precedent both for our profession as well as for patient safety.
