Changes in Texas Requirements

The State of Texas has made some changes in the continuing education requirements for radiologic technologists.  Below are some of the highlights:

General Certificate
You must complete 24 hours of continuing education (CE) during each biennial renewal period.  You are not required to complete CE during your first renewal period if your first renewal period is less than 24 months.  Of the required 24 hours of CE, at least 12 hours must be instructor-directed.   At least 50% of the required number of hours must be activities which are directly related (DIRECT CREDITS)
Limited Certificate
You must complete 18 hours of continuing education (CE) during each biennial renewal period.  You are not required to complete CE during your first renewal period if your first renewal period is less than 24 months.  Of the required 18 hours of CE, at least 9 hours must be instructor-directed. At least 50% of the required number of hours must be activities which are directly related (DIRECT CREDITS)
Non-Certified Technician
You must complete 12 hours of continuing education (CE) during each biennial renewal period.  You are not required to complete CE during your first renewal period if your first renewal period is less than 24 months.  At least 6 credits of the required number of hours must be instructer-led courses which are directly related (DIRECT CREDITS)

Direct credits are defined as:  ..."activities which are directly related to the use and application of ionizing forms of radiation to produce diagnostic images and/or administer treatment to human beings for medical purposes. For the purpose of this section, directly related topics include, but are not limited to: radiation safety, radiation biology and radiation physics; anatomical positioning; radiographic exposure technique; radiological exposure technique; emerging imaging modality study; patient care associated with a radiologic procedure; radiopharmaceutics, pharmaceutics, and contrast media application; computer function and application in radiology; mammography applications; nuclear medicine application; and radiation therapy applications."

Indirect credits are defined as: ..."indirectly related topics include, but are not limited to, patient care, computer science, computer literacy, introduction to computers or computer software, physics, human behavioral sciences, mathematics, communication skills, public speaking, technical writing, management, administration, accounting, ethics, adult education, medical sciences, and health sciences. Other courses may be accepted for credit provided there is a demonstrated benefit to patient care."

Out of Office

Our office will be closed on September 29 and 30.  Since many of you will be faxing your tests to us so that you receive your credits before the end of the month, here is information on how we apply the certificate dates:

The date of completion will be the date we receive your certificate by fax or e-mail or mail. Please note that tests are only graded during normal business hours (Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME). Certificates are dated with the date and Eastern Standard Time that they arrive in our office.  If a test is received after midnight EASTERN STANDARD TIME, the certificate will be dated for the next day.  When using the online testing portal, the date of completion will be the date and time that the "Grade Test" was clicked.  PLEASE NOTE THAT WE ARE ON EASTERN STANDARD TIME.  Any tests submitted for grading after 11:59 PM EST will have the next day's date.

New Mammography Course

We have added a new mammography course to our product listing.  The title is Breast Imaging Case Review.

This unique resource challenges you to look at a group of images, and determine the diagnosis. It all adds up to the best interactive review of breast imaging available--one that's ideal for certification or recertification, or as clinical refresher.

Distinguished by an effective 2-page design, This volume is filled with cases, annotated images, questions & answers, pearls, and relevant literature references that will efficiently prepare you for virtually any exam topic.

This course meets the FDA's definition of education acceptable for the mammography continuing education requirement for Mammographers.
