Computed Tomography Imaging is an integral part of high complexity imaging in Radiology. You can be ready to start an exciting new phase of your career through training for this modality. Understanding the principles, theory and console skills is necessary for decision making, patient care, and independent judgment. You can learn the sectional anatomy, computer operations, imaging protocols, and physics from the experts. Practical applications and clinical rotations are key ingredients to completing your training. You can choose the right combination of events to match your educational needs. Week one of the training covers principles and practice. Weeks two and three are clinical rotations. Invest in your future and advance your career. This three-week modular course is designed to introduce the technologist to computerized tomography principles and practice. Classroom instruction will include history and development of CT, basic physics, instrumentation, technique and protocols, positioning, sectional anatomy, Venipuncture, oral and IV contrast, safety considerations, and non-routine studies. Clinical training will provide the fellowship technologist with 40 hours per week of observation and hands-on instruction in local hospital settings. The clinical experience is designed to enhance and reinforce the principles studied during the week of theory.
