MR Safety

As part of our RT'S ARE THE FRONTLINE INITIATIVE, Advanced Imaging Review would like to give back to ALL the hard working Radiologic Technologists by providing FREE CE credits that can be applied towards your biennium. Each class will be offered "LIVE" online with an opportunity to watch the lecture at a later time if missed. Students must attend the entire "LIVE" lecture to obtain full credit for program. If you missed the LIVE session, you may still be able to obtain credit by watching the recorded session and successfully achieve a passing grade of 75% on the post- lecture examination.
