Location: Rivière-du-Loup, QC, Canada
Medical radiation technologists who perform breast imaging procedures 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 – Diagnostic program is designed to provide knowledge and clinical competence recognized by a credential that will be sought after by technologists and encouraged and advocated for by employers.
This course examines several cases involving brain imaging. What imaging techs will find insightful is the clearly presented diagnosis and multi-modality imaging seen throughout the course book. The cases reviewed cover a wide range of brain conditions and disease processes. This course will serve as a learning tool for the CT, MRI, and nuclear medicine technologist; however, it also provides an intelligent introduction for any radiologic technologist interested in these fields.
This course provides radiographers with an introduction to emergency signs and symptoms that includes topics such as pain, vital signs, seizure, and trauma.
This course reviews dose management goals, technical factors of digital fluoroscopy and how they influence radiation dose, dose reduction principles, safe and proper use of digital fluoroscopy equipment, and the concepts of justification and optimization in regards to radiation safety.
This course covers anatomy, physiology, abnormalities, special procedures(CT, MRI…) and which exams best benefit the patient and their condition. Those that work taking plain films will realize what an important role they play as the imaging starting point for virtually every disease.
This presentation will take a comprehensive look at CT imaging of the urinary system. Participants will learn to differentiate renal lesions based on imaging characteristics, identify pathologies demonstrated, and establish the rationale of having specific protocols for renal and urographic imaging.
This quick self-study course introduces the learner to the ways in which nutrition can play a role in cancer development, progression, treatment, recovery and
survivorship. There is compelling research that a healthy diet can significantly reduce a persons risk of developing some cancers. In addition, malnutrition is a common problem in cancer patients that has been recognized as an important component of adverse outcomes, including increased morbidity and mortality and decreased quality of life.
This course explores the current world of the mammographer and how we arrive at the finished product: a high quality mammography image. The influence of the digital revolution is emphasized on many fronts: image management,quality processes, interfacing and networking. Appropriate practice for those who are navigating this evolving environment will be provided. Students who have completed the change-over
processes from analog to digital, will learn the new quality control issues and the advanced applications of digital technology in the current world of mammography.
This course a source for information that can be used by anyone working with breast cancer care, risk, diagnosis, and for anyone who deals with patients who are concerned about breast cancer. It will help us to understand individual risk factors, procedures used to diagnose certain types of breast cancer, the different types of breast cander and how to help individuals lower their risk for breast cancer, with breast cancer screening and healthy living. It also helps us to understand medication being used to help reduce or prevent breast cancer from reoccurring.
This course covers radiation protection biology, the safe administration of x-rays, and current personnel and patient safety procedures. Topics include radiation physics, cell structure, effects of radiation on humans at the cellular and systemic levels, and regulatory and advisory limits for human exposure to radiation.
McMaster University offers an on-line Master program, directed to healthcare professionals who are seeking to assume or have assumed a leadership role in a variety of healthcare sectors. Graduates of the program will demonstrate new knowledge and skills in communication, political and healthcare environments, organizational behaviour and human resources management, research awareness and leadership. This on-line, part-time, course based degree fits easily into an individual’s lifestyle. You are welcome to review our website for more information, http://healthmanagement.mcmaster.ca.

This seminar is a comprehensive review of issues important to executing a quality mammographic exam, provides valuable information on 2-D and 3-D digital mammography, breast image analysis and critique and the pros and cons of current and emerging modalities
Location: Montreal, QC, Canada
A one-hour pre-recorded webinar on 3D mammography: indications and patient types; and technological and clinical differences between FFDM, 3D, and synthetic 2D images
This homestudy course titled A Woman’s Decision: Breast Care, Treatment, & Reconstruction provides in-depth information on breast anatomy; self-examinations; lumps and conditions; cancer diagnosis, facts, and treatment options; genetics; reconstruction; and real life survivor stories. Imaging modalities are discussed with regards to how each can be used in the diagnosis, treatment, and reconstruction process. This book is a wealth of information for mammographers and women who have been directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer.
This course provides a publication of the Oxford University Press as a quick-reference guide to all the medical imaging modalities and techniques for medical and surgical conditions. Packed with images from all modalities, any medical radiation technologist will begin to understand the increasingly important role that imaging plays in the diagnosis and treatment of patients – and find the course book a useful and lasting resource in the profession.

This program will begin with a review of the analog-based technologies including an introduction to digital imaging basics.
Location: Toronto, ON, Canada
This course provides current information about the important key points about each subspecialty of radiography.
Delivery of medical imaging services to females requires that radiographers have an understanding of women’s particular health issues, challenges and disparities. This course provides an overview of these issues and the rationale and implementation of radiation safety for the female patient during medical imaging.
Digital radiography and PACS are becoming the common place for radiography. This course contains information on the new developments of the latest digital imaging systems. It covers how the systems are integrated and networked so that all physicians involved in a patients care can access to the patients latest study. It is broken up into parts: introduction, basic principles, image acquisition and processing, PACS, and quality control and quality management.
Project management is the application of a body of knowledge including language, principles and practices that help teams plan and organize their efforts to complete projects successfully and efficiently. The goal of this course is to prepare learners with an understanding of project management principles, the tools and techniques used, the quality expected in the context of healthcare, the roles of those involved, modelling and improvement processes and strategic planning and evaluation.
This course provides an excellent introduction to the core concepts of human factors in patient safety and
principles of Human Factors Engineering (HFE). It addresses the inevitable problem of human fallibility and
explains fundamental sensory, cognitive and motor limitations of humans that predispose them to error. This
course examines vulnerabilities in complex work systems, offers practical strategies to prevent or reduce
human errors, and outlines methods to systematically analyze adverse events and identify solutions to ensure
safe, effective and efficient patient care.
This quick self study is designed to identify key issues in palliative radiation therapy and to provide specific
knowledge on the subject. Topics covered will include definitions of palliative radiation treatment and its side
effects, ethical issues and the topic of vulnerability as well as the importance of Quality of life versus
Quantity of life.
