Modules Meet Joint Commission Requirements

Apr 23, 2015
The ASRT has launched Safe CT Practices and Safe MRI Practices, online educational products to help radiologic technologists and facilities meet The Joint Commission’s revised computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging safety practice requirements and CT dose reduction requirements.

The Joint Commission’s revisions affect radiologic technologists who perform computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging procedures in ambulatory care, hospital and critical access facilities accredited by the Joint Commission.

Safe CT Practices highlights safety factors in CT including technical factor selection, positioning and shielding. Safe MRI Practices showcases safety factors in MRI including safety principles, patient screening and emergency management. Please note that the modules are for safety training only and are not eligible for continuing education credit.

For facilities practicing CT and MRI which must meet The Joint Commission’s revised requirements, ASRT developed the Safe CT and MRI Practices Combo Pack, which includes both modules.
