About this class
This training program is a theoretical and practical program designed to prepare the CT Technologist for onsite applications training. It may also enhance the learning experience for those attending after their onsite applications training. This training program is designed to introduce the Technologist to the Revolution CT scanning system. It is based on the needs of the target audience described below. Please read through this description and agenda to decide if this course meets your needs and expectations. Participants who meet attendance requirements are eligible for ASRT continuing education credits. This lecture and hands-on session is conducted on a live scanner, with additional demonstration consoles located at the GE Healthcare Institute near Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss scanning parameter and protocol selections, image display functions, archiving, networking and practice job-related activities. Though Cardiac Scanning will be introduced, no post processing of coronary arteries will be done. There is a limited class size to ensure plenty of hands-on training and practice.
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 on the Revolution CT Scanner.

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.
