New Continuing Education site.


I was just was made aware of a continuing education site I think you should check out. It’s a very straight forward, easy to navigate site, and all the credits are approved by the ASRT.

Here’s the link: ce4rt  Getting continuing education is now easier for radiologic technologists who are busy and on the go. And finally there are courses that are made for you and your profession instead of physician books that are out of your scope of practice. No more sitting in seminars all day or snail mailing books to get credits. We have unique courses offering a variety of credits to meet your needs. At CE4RT.com we offer easy and affordable continuing education you can get on your smartphone, tablet, or PC you can get right now and have your credits today.

I hope you find it useful, and comments are welcomed.

Update to this post, I didn’t realize it but I had already had this site in my continuing education pages under XRayCeRT, it seems Jason Eisenbeisz has updated his link. I hope this doesn’t cause any problems, and I encourage you to visit his site.

Celebrating Passionate Pink Day


Celebrating Passionate Pink Day at Our Hospital
On October 17th 2008 the department celebrated Passionate Pink Day to raise funds for the Susan Komen foundation. The staff made donations to wear pink to work for the day, almost everyone participated.
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever. In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. If you would like to participate, then visit the website at Susan B Komen.

Our staff celebrating the day.

Radiopaedia.org Beta 2.0 is here!!


A must visit website from my radiology friend Dr. Frank Gaillard.

Radiopedaedia Beta 2.0Here is the new beta 2.0 version.

Welcome to Radiopaedia.org, a collaborative radiology resource.

Anyone can join. Anyone can edit. Registration is free.

This is the brand new 2.0 beta version of the site. Our aim was to release the site as soon as it was better than the old one, so that we can get on with the business of continuing to make Radiopaedia.org one of the best radiology resources available. In our opinion, and we think you will agree, this site is already a huge improvement on the old site. It is however a beta release and thus there are a few rough edges and features missing.

We are working hard to implement the remaining core features over the next couple of months, but we would love to hear from you. What features do you want to see? How can we improve current features? After all Radiopaedia.org is all about you. See what other users think and add your own ideas.

If you see any bugs (there will be some), please let us know by dropping us an email at support@radiopaedia.org It helps us a great deal if you tell us as much about the bug as you can as well as your setup (Windows or Mac? Which browser?) and we will fix it as soon as possible.
