Dec. 4—Toshiba America Medical Systems now offers two new advanced technologist courses in CT and MR at the Toshiba Education Center in Irvine, Calif.
Sharon Yoon, director of education and sales support at Toshiba, said the courses “in CT and MR are designed to not only train technologists in advanced applications and operations, but also to teach them why these applications are important and how they impact and improve overall patient care.”
The two new courses for technologists are:
- The Advanced Cardiac CT training course provides a foundation of cardiac anatomy and physiology with ECG and cardiac gating concepts. The three-day course is accredited for continuing education by the ASRT Education Foundation.
- The Advanced MR breast imaging course is a two-day training course that provides a foundation of breast anatomy and physiology, patient preparation and positioning and parameter selection. Advanced concepts taught in the course include an overview of the ACR guidelines for breast MRI, evaluation of breast cancer, implant rupture and the use of CAD.
