Course Detail: CT1000 - Computed Tomography (CT) Cross Training: Registry Prep And Review
The goal of the program is to prepare Radiologic Technologists, Nuclear Medicine Technologists and Radiation Therapy Technologists to sit for and pass the ARRT exam in Computed Tomography. Course curricula and clinical competency follow the guidelines established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. The curriculum also corresponds with all of the requirements set forth by the NMTCB for their CT specific exam. Comprehensive didactic instruction includes, but is not limited to: patient care and safety, CT physics, systems operations and instrumentation, cross-sectional anatomy/data acquisition, image display and post processing of all imaging procedures, quality control, informatics, contrast media and administration along with intensive examination. Students are required to pass the program with a minimum of a 75% grade point average and will receive the ASRT approved 72 hours of CEU credits if they attend the entire didactic program. Attendance is mandatory for CEU credits. To qualify and complete all of the board requirements, Students will be required to meet all supervised clinical competency standards (at participating facilities or at your own place of employment) to be eligible for the ARRT and NMTCB exam. These clinical requirements can be achieved in concert and after the didactic course.Upon completion of the didactic and clinical components of the program, participants will be signed off to qualify to sit for the advanced level examination in CT offered by the ARRT and/or NMTCB.
