s 17 second-year Radiologic Technology students looked on, Governor Jack Markell signed a proclamation designating Nov. 6-12, 2016 as Radiation Protection Week. The signing occurred at Delaware Technical Community College’s (DTCC) Jack F. Owens Campus in Georgetown. The occasion preceded an annual student-run Radiologic Technology Open House where students demonstrated their knowledge of medical x-ray imaging equipment and procedures at seven stations. The event also celebrated a trio of anniversaries: the 50th anniversary of the college, the 40th anniversary of the Authority on Radiation Protection, and the 30th anniversary of the Radiologic Technology Program at the Owens Campus.




Enhanced Public Education Website Launched During Radiation Protection Week in Delaware

It’s no surprise that radiation is emitted through many medical devices such as X-ray machines, but fewer people know that it can be produced by, or found in, smoke detectors, granite, and fluorescent lightbulbs. To encourage Delawareans to learn more about radiation, its sources and its benefits, the Authority on Radiation Protection launched its upgraded website www.deradiationprotection.org on Monday Nov. 9, 2015.
