    ASRT Will Transition to Digital Delivery of all CE Offerings

    Oct 27, 2021

    Our profession continuously evolves as technology advances and new best practices are established. Radiologic technologists across all disciplines have relied on continuing education to keep up with innovations and to deliver the very best patient care. Since CE requirements were established in 1995, ASRT has provided CE through Directed Readings in its scientific journals, a format that worked for all.

    However, the way the world shares information has evolved. Technologists have unique CE requirements depending on their certifications, American Registry of Radiologic Technologists CQR prescription, state licensure rules, and facility and regulatory CE needs. As such, delivering CE options by mail every other month is not meeting our members’ diverse CE requirements.

    To address these challenges, ASRT is changing its CE delivery method. Starting on Feb. 8, 2022, all ASRT members will gain access to our online CE Library of more than 450 courses. New Directed Readings will be published exclusively online and will no longer be published in our scientific journals. Please note that the journals will continue to arrive in the mail containing the outstanding peer-reviewed articles, short reports and case studies you’ve come to expect.

    The online delivery of CE will better serve the needs of ASRT members today and in the future. It will allow us to quickly provide solutions to rapidly changing requirements and offer members an expanded catalog of CE choices in a convenient, on-demand platform. This transition is an important step to ensure ASRT continues its mission to advance and elevate the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to enhance the quality and safety of patient care.

    I encourage you to visit the informational web page,, and learn how this transition provides you with expanded access to CE credits. The page also outlines new benefit enhancements to make membership even more valuable. If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact our Member Services team at 800-444-2778 or, weekdays from 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Mountain time.

    Radiologic Technologists Essential in all Health Care Settings, On the Front Lines of Patient Care

    Nov 08, 2021

    America’s nearly 350,000 registered radiologic technologists are the medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals who perform radiologic procedures as part of high quality, comprehensive health care. Even beyond x-ray, magnetic resonance and computed tomography, the ranks of radiologic technologists also include nuclear medicine imaging professionals, cardiovascular and interventional technologists, radiologist assistants, radiation therapists, mammographers, military R.T.s, radiology department managers, educational program directors and other radiologic science professionals. They are all dedicated to ensuring patients receive the best care possible.

    Their expertise has been critical in the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19 where they have served on the front lines of the pandemic. Educated in anatomy, radiologic science, equipment protocols and radiation protection measures, R.T.s play an essential role in patient care and safety.

    During National Radiologic Technology Week® every November, the American Society of Radiologic Technologists recognizes the vital work of R.T.s and their important contributions to patient care. NRTW® takes place every November to honor German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen’s discovery of the x-ray on Nov. 8, 1895.

    Where do they work? In a study ASRT published earlier this year, researchers determined that slightly more than half of all radiologic technologists work in hospitals. Others work in imaging centers, clinics, physician’s offices, corporate settings and education. In addition, these professionals also perform radiation therapy treatments on patients being treated for cancer and other diseases. (See infographic for details.)

    ASRT is the world’s largest radiologic science organization and represents the medical imaging and radiation therapy community through education, advocacy, research and innovation. NRTW® 2021 will be celebrated Nov. 7-13.

    Dec 16, 2021

    The American Society of Radiologic Technologists has donated $10,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with tornado relief and recovery efforts for a disaster that spanned multiple states in the South and Midwest. The donation is on behalf of the ASRT’s 156,000 members.

    With thousands of homes affected and damage stretching across 250 miles, the American Red Cross is on the ground operating shelters and providing meals and supplies to affected areas as quickly as possible.

    “We send our sympathy and support to everyone in these devastated communities, especially to those who lost loved ones,” said ASRT President Kristi Moore, Ph.D., R.T.(R)(CT). “We are grateful that hundreds of Red Cross volunteers are working to provide comfort and assistance, and we are proud to be able to support their efforts.”

    ASRT is committed to assisting its members and local communities affected by natural disasters and donates to organizations that can help with on-site recovery efforts.

    “Our contribution to the Red Cross will provide crucial support for those individuals in desperate need of assistance,” said ASRT Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, FASAE, CAE. “As the world’s largest radiologic science association our mission is to enhance the quality and safety of patient care, so when a disaster strikes, we want to help those affected in any way possible.”
