The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) is introducing a new online platform for its members to become proficient in CT imaging techniques.

Teaming with Elsevier Partners; a publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, the ASRT will provide a complete series of CT modules through Mosby’s Imaging Suite.

The fully integrated, online solution has been developed to meet the routine communication, workflow, education, and compliance challenges of radiologic technologists and managers. Hospitals will be able to license the CT Basics modules through Mosby’s Imaging Suite, giving access to the entire radiology staff.

CT Basics is composed of 10 interactive modules with a full overview of the fundamentals of the modality. The modules feature colorful images with easy-to-understand animations that are designed to engage technologists throughout the learning process. Among the topics covered are equipment and instrumentation, data acquisition applications, imaging processing and reconstruction, patient safety, image quality and procedures, and sectional anatomy and pathology.

Upon completing the modules, technologists will earn 14 Category A continuing education credits and receive a recognition of achievement certificate from the ASRT.

The modules are expected to be available through Mosby’s Imaging Suite beginning in the fourth quarter of 2010.
