Medical radiation technologists who perform screening mammography have a special role in the healthcare of the public. MRTs must be highly competent practitioners excelling in their ability to produce quality images and to manage the patient with care and expertise in a highly technical environment. The Certificate in Breast Imaging – Screening (CBIS) program is designed to provide a means that will provide knowledge and clinical competence recognized by a credential that will be sought after by technologists and encouraged and advocated for by employers.
The reading covers all aspects of biology as the science of life – a good review of the basics for the imaging technologist. With several easy-to-read diagrams and a thorough explanation each topic – complex biological subjects are made clear. It covers many areas such as biology of the cell, DNA and gene expression, human biology, as well as many others. The course material would be suitable for any imaging modality.
This course provides the technologist with in-depth and comprehensive information needed when called to assist in forensic investigations. The major course topics include an introduction to forensic radiology, identification of the dead, imaging gunshot wounds, imaging abuse and non-violent crimes, virtual imaging, forensic radiological technology, and essentials of diagnostic imaging.
The course covers the following major topics: Introduction to Fluoroscopy, Radiation Review, Fluoroscopy Systems, Procedures, and Preparation, Measuring Fluoroscopy Dose, Radiation Management, Pediatric Fluoroscopy, Structural Design and Personnel Protective Apparel, for Radiation Protection, Quality Improvement, Quality Control Equipment Performance, and Fluoroscopy Training and Qualification.
