XSO Refresher

Nov 16, 2017

This refresher course is designed to help employers with industrial or medical X-Ray equipment across Canada to continue satisfying their regulatory obligations.
The regulators, both federal and provincial, expect that a qualified person will be designated as an X-Ray Safety Officer by the employer. The best way to maintain such qualifications is to continue updating existing knowledge. We recommend that a refresher course be taken every 3 years to keep up-to-date with all changes and requirements.

Sectional Anatomy 1

Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists

Sectional Anatomy is the cornerstone of many medical imaging procedures. This course is designed in the interest of technologists who perform procedures and or view images in cross section and intended to familiarize the technologist with sectional anatomy and its application in medical imaging. The location of organs, vasculature and musculature of the abdomen, pelvis, thorax and neck will be examined in a variety of imaging planes.

The course is built on a strong foundational knowledge of two dimensional anatomy including knowledge of anatomical features of structures, their location within the body and with respect to other structures. This may require independent review depending on the technologist’s personal experience and background. Although the course is presented using numerous CT images, students are encouraged to appreciate the multimodality aspect of sectional anatomy and will be introduced to: MRI, PET/CT and MR/CT hybrid applications and images.
