Computed tomography (CT) uses ionising radiation to produce sectional images of the body. In order to operate the equipment in a safe and competent manner, you must be equipped with the appropriate knowledge of science and instrumentation. This will allow you to understand the hazards involved in this speciality and how to operate the equipment safely and thus select the most appropriate imaging parameters for each individual patient's condition and diagnostic problem.
The assessments associated with this course require you to be able to evaluate CT equipment, assess quality assurance procedures and understand scanning parameters. This can only be achieved through dedicated clinical time within a CT department.
Who is it for?
This course is designed for radiography practitioners working in computed tomography (CT).
The course delivery is in January/February of each year in two three-day blocks.
This course equips participants with the appropriate knowledge of science and instrumentation that’s necessary for competent and safe CT practice.
