OVERVIEW

CT Training Course for Technologists is organized by Medical Technology Management Institute (MTMI) and will be held from Nov 11 - 15, 2019.

Audience:
This course is appropriate for technologists wishing to enter the field of CT scanning with no previous experience as well as technologists who have worked in CT without extensive formal training. This course is also appropriate for technologists working with hybrid imaging systems that include CT such as PET/CT or SPECT/CT. A working background in cross-sectional anatomy is desirable, but is not required.

Credits:
This program provides 37.25 hours of Category A continuing education credit for radiologic technologists approved by ASRT and recognized by the ARRT and various licensure states. Category A credit is also recognized by CAMRT’s Continuing Education Credit Approval Program for CE credit in Canada. You must attend the entire program to receive your certificate of completion.

This 37.25 credit activity provides the 16 hours of structured education related to the content specifications outlined by the ARRT, required for certification and registration.

Description:
The technology of medical imaging has undergone a tremendous change since the Nobel prize-winning development of computed tomography. Becoming knowledgeable about high technology imaging is essential for the radiologic technologist to grow with the field.

This course will provide technologists with the opportunity to learn this technology and become part of the evolution toward computerized imaging. This is an opportunity to improve your technical knowledge and prepare for the ARRT CT Registry Examination. If you are looking to increase your job opportunities or provide yourself with a more satisfying work experience, then this course is for you.

Educational Objectives:
At the completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the basic principles and concepts of computed tomography.
• Incorporate scanning techniques learned to best demonstrate anatomy and pathology.
• Describe techniques in manipulating CT parameters to optimize image quality.
• Recognize CT artifacts and describe techniques to minimize their occurrence.
• Compare the advantages and disadvantages of various CT scanner configurations.
• Review and understand radiation exposures in CT, how to measure and report CT dose and dose reduction techniques.

Prerequisite for this course is ARRT or NMTCB registration or state licensure. Contact MTMI for details.
