My recommendations for the ARRT CT Registry

My recommendations for the ARRT CT Registry:

These are the materials I’ve gathered as resources for the ARRT CT registry. If you are looking for material from the ARRT about the registry,  you need to download these pdf files from the ARRT site.

If your a member of the ASRT here are probably the best study guides for the registry $$$$ ASRT CT Registry Review

Best Study Review book: Mosby’s Exam Review for Computed Tomography, 2e [Paperback] by Daniel N. DeMaio BS RT(R)(CT) $$$$ Amazon

Online CT Review Courses: CTtutor $$$$ I just added this site, and highly recommend that you visit and check it out.

Medical Imaging Consultants MIC $$$$ ( There have been very many technologists who have had success with this course, including tech’s that I worked with in the past).

Outstanding online learning web sites: CTisus Multi-slice helical CT physics and technology, (older information, but a good resource)

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Contrast (From CTISUS)

If you have any questions about the registry or these web sites please let me know, I would by happy to try and answer them for you.

Becoming a Radiologic Technologist: A Student’s Guide: from Choosing the Right School to Jump Starting Your Career

This is an outstanding resource book for people who are seeking information about entering the field of radiologic technology. It was written by a long time friend of mine Jeremy Enfinger BS, RT(R), who I met through my website “Dave’s Places in Radiology”. Jeremy’s has worked in all facets of radiology, especially education, is a test writer for the ARRT boards, and has degrees in Bachelor’s of Science in Radiologic Sciences, and Associate Degree in Radiologic Science. He also manage’s a radiology blog Topics in Radiology. I highly recommend this book!

Jeremy Enfinger RT(R) (Author) This book is intended to be used as a resource for people interested in becoming a Radiologic Technologist. There are many aspects to researching schools, the health care job market, and keys to success within the field of radiology. There are also many pitfalls like non accredited institutions that claim to qualify students to be able to work in a hospital as an x-ray tech after completion of their program, but do not meet accreditation standards needed to acquire the necessary credentials. This guide will provide everything the potential x-ray student needs to research accredited schools, be successful in a radiography program, and stand out among peers to gain a competitive edge when seeking a job after graduation.
