This activity was prepared by Springer Healthcare Italia s.r.l, medical publisher and Italian standard CME Provider accredited by the CME National Commission to provide continuing training programs for all professions, in collaboration with the technology partner elearnit. Springer Healthcare Italia s.r.l submitted this e-learning material for EACCME accreditation (for non Italian Learners) and for Agenas accreditation (for Italian Learners). The provider assumes responsibility for the content, quality and ethical correctness of this CME activity.

Scientific rationale and goal of the event: It is well known that CT procedures which volumes are on the rise provide valuable and irreplaceable diagnostic information for patients. However, with this increase in utilization, there is a growing concern about the cumulative radiation dose to the general population. As a result, CT dose reduction has become a top priority for many radiology practices. The purpose of this course is to increase CT radiation dose awareness and address the technical aspects of CT radiation dose reduction.



Learners (Medical Doctors: fully qualified medical specialists in Radiology and Radiologists in training) need to verify the terms to obtain nationally recognized CME Credits (https://www.uems.eu/areas-of-expertise/cme-cpd/eaccme).


Globally the course is structured in three consecutive modules. In each module, the teacher will present the main topic of the module in three 10 minutes video lessons. The course will be completed by the presentation of  clinical cases with clinical decision points and a further reading. At the end of the course, participants will have to pass the learning test (see above) and fill in the quality assessment form.

This is the first module- 1HR MODULE

Module 1 - Radiation dose: overview of the issue and general technical strategies for reducing it  (Prof. Mathias Prokop)

In this first module the author will discuss about radiation dose and the risk incurred during CT examinations together with general approaches to minimize radiation dose exposure during CT scans.

Procedure di valutazione


Rules for training path: Learning Materials have to be viewed sequentially. In order to acquire credits, the training path has to be completed, included learner's feedback. Already viewed Learning Materials can be viewed as many times as the Learner want. Printable handouts are not mandatory, but reading them can be useful to follow the video lessons. Learning Materials will be downloadable even after completing the course, until the course will be active.

Attendance: Participation is documented by the learning test and by the attendance tracking system on the platform; assessment for learning is documented by specific test and certified by the Provider.

Final assessment test: At the end of the module, a questionnaire to the test learning outcomes will have to be completed (3 questions that have 4 possible answers, only one correct); Achievement threshold: 75%; possibility to take the test 5 times, double randomization (randomization of questions and answers).

credit attestation: A downloadable PDF file certificate will be automatically available for the users who have completed the course by passing the verification test. Users who are entitled to it (ie: participants who have filled the personal details form, belong to a the professional body for which the course has been accredited, who have completed the course by passing the learning test and completing the perceived quality assessment sheet) will be able to view, download and print the CME credit attestation in PDF format.

attendance certificate: send your request to  ecm.springeritaly@springernature.com
