Computed Tomography Curriculum

Current CT Curriculum

Proposed Revised Draft

The ASRT updates and revises its curricula on a five-year cycle. The update process for the next version of the CT Curriculum is currently underway by the curriculum revision project workgroup. This process includes curriculum review, revision, community review and comment and submission for formal adoption. The goal of this project is to have a final document available in early 2018.

The public comment period for the draft Computed Tomography Curriculum containing proposed revisions has closed. Comments and recommendations for edits to the draft have been compiled and shared with the curriculum revision project workgroup.

The proposed revisions to the Computed Tomography Curriculum include several major changes:

  • CT procedures have been updated to reflect current practice.
  • Terms related to conventional and spiral scanning modes have been updated. 
  • Additional procedural considerations for pediatric patients have been added.
  • Radiation protection practices for CT patients have been updated.
  • Head and brain content within the Sectional Anatomy section has been reorganized.
  • Sectional Anatomy content has been removed from the Foundations section and appears only in the Core Content.
