ASRT, ARRT say more CT education needed

Medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals need more education in CT operation, application, and dose, according to a panel jointly sponsored by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

The 32-member panel in August 2007 and April 2008 examined the issues and challenges facing CT. The panel developed nine consensus statements that focus on patient safety, regulations, and reimbursement; education and practice; CT in diagnostic radiology; CT in radiation therapy; and CT in nuclear medicine.
