Congratulations to our MRT Hero, Judy Baranowski! 📣

Judy loves being an MRI technologist. As an MRI technologist, she uses magnetic resonance to obtain images critical to the diagnosis and management of countless conditions for millions of patients across Canada. An important part of her day-to-day is also preparing patients for their MRI exam when she explains the procedure and helps to instill confidence in her patients.

Thank you Judy!

Congratulations to this week's MRT Hero, Sean Jones!

Sean is radiological technologist at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, Ontario. His shifts typically rotate between Interventional Radiology and computed tomography (CT), with occasional work in general radiography. In Interventional Radiology, he is part of an interdisciplinary team and works collaboratively with registered nurses and radiologists to perform minimally invasive image-guided procedures such as biopsies, angiograms and line insertions. As technologists, they routinely scrub in with the physician to assist with procedures. Sean shared, “I feel very fortunate to work with such an excellent team on a daily basis. My colleagues at Southlake are extremely caring, dedicated and patient-centered and all deserve recognition for their tireless efforts throughout this pandemic!”

Thank you!

Hello, I am interested in studying to become a CT technician. I understand that your company offers this medical field and rewards its students with certificates. But is it possible that you have a diploma program, instead? I don't live in Ontario but I am from Quebec. Do you have any information of where I could study for this particular program? I am curious, if I were to obtain a CT technician certificate. Will I be able to find employment with it? Thank you so much! Hope to hear from you, soon! Kind Regards, Ravenne

Hi everyone, I am a Fourth-year student studying Radiation Therapy in Trinity College Dublin. I am doing research into the Patient Safety Culture within the Radiation Oncology Multi-Disciplinary-Team (MDT). Link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LBWGT25 If you are a member of a RO-MDT your participation would be greatly appreciated and will help to assess the strengths and weaknesses across each of the MDT member types. The main benefit in participation is contributing to the improvement of the Safety culture and as a result Patient Safety.

Hello ! I am currently a student in the 3rd year of the DTS IMRT (Medical Imaging and Therapeutic Radiology) at the Jean Rostand high school in Strasbourg in France to become a X-Rays Technician. I carry out my final year work on the place of Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) in the professional practice of X-Rays technicians. And as part of this work, I conduct a survey in different departments to get an overview of practice and experiences in the field. This survey is intended for X-rays Technicians in the broad sense. I'm contacting you because I'm trying to get responses from X-Ray technicians who come from different countries to explore this subject in its entirety. So I would like to know if it would be possible for you to publish this survey on your page ? It would be very helpful for my work ! I already thank you for the time you just gave me, STREICHER Marine, student I am sending you attached the link to my survey : https://goo.gl/forms/JvBRexTDkXCVi0CD3 I am also sending you the link to the french version : https://goo.gl/forms/NIg1iU9FPhpnmEXV2 Thank you very much !
Anyone have a list of conferences, or know of any in your area, that MRTs can attend? Anyone attend any conferences in the US or other countries? The CAMRT website doesn't have anything listed for 2019. Thanks!
