Demand for CT techs outpaces credentialing

Article

More radiologic technologists are working in CT than ever. But about three out of five lack credentials, according to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

More radiologic technologists are working in CT than ever. But about three out of five lack credentials, according to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

In May, the ARRT surveyed almost 250,000 radiologic technologists. The surprising discovery was that almost 29,000 of the nearly 50,000 who reported working in CT are not registered in CT.

The increasing number of hybrid imaging systems combining PET or SPECT with CT is placing nuclear medicine technologists in the same predicament. However, pending legislation to establish national accreditation standards for technologists in all fields and imaging modalities could become an incentive to get up to speed.
