C SPINE INJURIES   
Approved by the ASRT for 6 Category A hours
This course expires 5/1/16 and will not be re-accredited. You must complete the course prior to 5/1/16.

Neck and back pain account for many of the radiological exams performed on patients in the U.S. The course focuses on spine anatomy, the effects of aging on the spine, common sources of pain, traumatic injuries, and diseases. 

 CT ESSENTIALS 
Approved by the ASRT for 10.5 Category A hours 
This course expires 11/1/2016 and will not be re-accredited. You must complete this course prior to 11/1/16.

The course is 31 chapters in length (17 of which are cross-sectional anatomy images).
This course was written for three audiences:
1. Radiologic technologists who want to learn more about CT, or have a desire to cross-train in CT in the future.
2. New CT technologists who are preparing to take the ARRT CT registry examination.
3. Experienced CT technologists who want to refresh and expand their CT knowledge base.

LIVING WITH SHIFTWORK
Approved by the ASRT for 2 Category A hours 
This course expires 7/1/2016 and will not be re-accredited. You must complete this course prior to 7/1/16.

Shift workers, night workers and those who are on-call may find themselves tired much of the time because of their work schedule. Being overly tired makes it difficult to concentrate, which increases the possibility of errors or accidents. This can be a risk both to the worker and to the public. The stress of shift work also can aggravate health conditions, such as heart disease or digestive disorders. Many radiologic technologists cannot avoid night or rotating shift work. Therefore, this course suggests ways of coping with such work schedules. Organizational or group approaches may include redesigning the work schedule, redistributing the workload, improving the work environment, and instituting programs to improve worker awareness. Individual approaches include improved sleep strategies, exercise and diet programs, and relaxation techniques.

WHAT'S IN YOUR HEAD?
Approved by the ASRT for 4 Category A+ hours 
This course expires 4/1/2016 and will not be re-accredited. You must complete this course prior to 4/1/16.

In the United States, trauma is a leading cause of death in individuals under 45 years of age, and brain injury results in more trauma deaths than do injuries to any other body region. One in 12 deaths in the United States results from injury, with over 160,000 injury-related deaths in 1999. For every 24 persons who seek medical treatment for a brain injury, about 6 are admitted to a hospital and one individual dies from their brain injury. The overall incidence is 150/100,000 injuries per year, or about 700,000 new cases of brain injury occur each year in the U.S.

INJURIES OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY
Approved by the ASRT for 5.5 Category A hours 
This course expires 4/1/2016 and will not be re-accredited. You must complete this course prior to 4/1/16.

Injuries, particularly fractures of the lower extremity are very common and can have serious and lifelong consequences for the patient. Fractures can disrupt blood flow, cause blood loss, and damage surrounding soft tissues. The most common causes of fracture in the lower extremities are from motor vehicle accidents, falls and recreational or sports activities. Fractures of the foot and ankle can be difficult to visualize, making the radiologic technologist's skills all the more important. 

RADIOLOGY STUDY GUIDE

The Radiology Study Guide is a limited license x-ray course designed specifically for Nurses, medical assistants, CNA's and other health care workers who are asked to perform x-rays in addition to their regular duties.

The Radiology Study Guide has been developed to serve two objectives:
1. Providing basic academic education in Radiologic Technology
2. Preparing eligible candidates to successfully sit for State limited licensure certification examination
