CT has become an important diagnostic tool in medical imaging. With advances in image quality and reduction in scan times, CT has experienced enormous growth in clinical use and, in some cases, the elimination of some previously performed x-ray procedures. The intent of the Certificate in CT Imaging is to provide a mechanism for radiological and nuclear medicine technologists to demonstrate knowledge and competence in the field of CT imaging, to promote standards of excellence within this clinical area, and to identify those who have met a nationally recognized standard.
The relationship between a clinical student and the technologist who works with the student can be either rewarding or very challenging. Technologists are the experts in the practice of medical radiation technology, and in a facility where a student is assigned for a clinical practicum there is an expectation that the technologist will be able to guide the student to entry level competency. Feedback is an essential requirement to maintaining a professional and effective learning relationship between students and technologists. This QSS provides the technologist with information about the importance of feedback when working with students on clinical placements.
