Elsevier partners with ASRT to provide multimedia educational modules through Mosby's Imaging Suite
Date:8/19/2010

Philadelphia, PA August 19, 2010 Elsevier, the world's leading publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, today announced an exclusive partnership with The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) to provide a complete series of computed tomography modules through Mosby's Imaging Suite for technologists' continuing education. This partnership will provide technologists access to the highest quality continuing education, and will give hospital management the best tools to ensure patient safety.

Mosby's Imaging Suite is the first fully integrated, online solution developed to meet the routine communication, workflow, education, and compliance challenges of radiologic technologists and managers. Hospitals will be able to licence the CT Basics modules through Mosby's Imaging Suite, and allow access to the entire radiological staff.

"This partnership comes at a critical time when hospitals want to make sure their staff is qualified, certified and continually educated to increase patient safety and reduce exposure," said Leslie Zacks, Director of Product Development at Elsevier. "As a result of this partnership, hospitals can now provide a full range of CT e-learning modules where technologists receive credits for their participation, providing a significant advantage for the department."

Composed of 10 interactive modules, the CT Basics series provides radiologic technologists (RTs) with a full overview of the fundamentals of computed tomography. The modules feature colorful images with easy-to-understand animations that engage participants in the learning process. The complete package covers a broad range of CT topics, including fundamentals of CT; equipment and instrumentation; data acquisition, applications, imaging processing and reconstruction; patient safety, imaging quality, procedures; and sectional anatomy and pathology.

"This is a wonderful opportunity to help radiologic technologists secure the information they need to safely and efficiently work in CT," said Myke Kudlas, M.Ed., R.T.(R)(QM), ASRT vice president of education and research. "Mosby's Imaging Suite is a great vehicle to distribute the CT Basics content and educate technologists about this growing practice area."

Because CT training often is not provided in the classroom, many technologists learn this specialty through hands-on experience and on-the-job training. With ASRT's CT Basics modules available through Mosby's Imaging Suite, technologists will now be able to learn the basics through self-directed learning, in addition to on-the-job training.

Radiologic technologists will earn 14 Category A continuing education credits and receive a Recognition of Achievement from the ASRT following the successful completion of all 10 modules. The complete CT module package will be available through Mobsy's Imaging Suite beginning in Q4 2010.
