Understanding new and developing technologies for the early detection of breast cancer is the objective of this course. It is known that many lives can be saved by early breast cancer detection. There are new technologies being developed in imaging of the breast that involves every imaging modality in the radiology department, and many other branches to help with the diagnosis of breast cancer.
Improving Breast Imaging is a course about standards, quality and improving breast imaging. One of the first steps towards the quality of breast imaging was the implementation of the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). This course will cover ways to improve the interpretation of mammograms, possible shortages in the workforce, other modalities used in detecting breast cancer, and information about what goes on behind the scenes; regulations, inspections, enforcement, and legal liabilities

MRI has it’s own language and our intention is to familiarize the technologist learning MRI, or reaffirm the seasoned technologist with terms used only in MRI. This course has Mathematical formulas, equipment preparation, equipment specifications and requirements plus much more information needed to perform examinations.
This Course teaches medical language in a systemic approach, along with anatomy and physiology review in an easy to understand format.
This course gives important information about radiographic film construction, processing and the production of quality radiograph’s. It also provides information about the latest developments in digital imaging and filmless radiography.
Anatomy is an integral part of life in Radiology. It is essential to know the bones and organs, and equally essential to have a basic understanding of all the intricate structures that aid in the function of the human body. This Course will renew the knowledge of the technologist in gross anatomy in an understandable, uncomplicated format.
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.
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.
Although this course is geared towards limited scope Radiography, it is a great refresher for all technologists with an introduction to radiography, the science of radiography, radiographic anatomy, positioning, pathology, professionalism, patient care and ancillary clinical skills.
Anatomy and Physiology is an integral part of life in the Radiology Department. It is essential to know the bones and organs, and equally essential to have a basic understanding of all the intricate structures that aid in the function of the human body. This course will renew the knowledge of the technologist in anatomy and physiology in an incredibly easy format.
This course is split into four sections: Professional Consideration and Patient Care, Equipment and Quality Control, Image Production and Evaluation, and Radiation Effect and Preventive Measure. You will be get a brief description of the job expectations in every aspect.
This course a review of all the things we learned in college and some new basic information too. All you need to know about taking good care of your patients is in this course, ethics, bill of rights, transport, IV’s, contraindications to medications. It is an excellent patient care review text.
The Principals of this course are based on giving patients the best possible care, long term or short term. It touches on safety for you and your patient, transferring patients, patient assessment, infection control, venipuncture, patient communication and many other helpful skills that are placed upon techs on a daily basis.

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.
A comprehensive assessment of chest radiography. From plain film radiographs to contrast enhanced CT, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine studies. It gives explanations of many common and not common diseases of the chest. It divides the chest in to different aspects from large airway disease to the chest wall. Every chapter gives a description of the normal anatomy, variants, signs to look for, pathology and a description of how to best visualize the disease.
