About this class
Discovery PET/CT Clinical Imaging training is a theoretical and practical program designed to reinforce and enhance practical imaging experience. This didactic and hands-on course focuses on basic system operation and patient procedures. The hands-on sessions are conducted in the Advantage Workstation Lab and service bays at the GE Healthcare Institute near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Students will benefit from the small class size and plenty of guided hands-on instruction and practice. Participants who meet attendance requirements are eligible for CEU (ASRT).
By the end of the program, Technologists who attend the complete course will be able to use system features and demonstrate basic procedures on the Discovery MI or Discovery IQ scanner and AW Workstation.
