About this class
The CT Cardiac program is delivered utilizing the Revolution HD or Revolution EVO 64 Slice scanners and AW Workstation labs and classrooms. Training methodology will combine lecture and hands-on guided practice. Training content will combine the practical applications of scanner and post processing functions with training on Cardiac anatomy introduced while performing mock studies and manipulation of scan and image data. Image interpretation is NOT part of this course. Participants who meet attendance requirements are eligible for ASRT continuing education credits. Capacity will be limited to ensure an environment conducive to learning. Focus will be on operation and application of Cardiac CT scanning hardware and software on the current CT scanners and Cardiac Workstation software.
By the end of the program, Technologists who attend the complete didactic segment will be able to use system features and perform basic to intermediate procedures as described in the Skill Inventory.

CE Considerations for HQ Classes
Continuing Education credit is earned by Technologists who complete the training curriculums as presented by the clinical educators. The Applications training is designed to enhance learning, prepare the Technologists to provide the best patient care possible and to achieve particular learning outcomes or objectives. Planning for this training requires the use of certain content and instructional strategies. Limited class size, consistent participation and continued peer-to-peer interaction are key factors in a successful training program.
