Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography – 1.75 Radiology CE Credits

An interactive radiology continuing education course covering the fundamentals of abdominal and pelvic radiography, including everything from abdominopelvic anatomy to patient body habitus and positioning


Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography ASRT-approved Radiology CE course for Radiologic Technologists
Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography ASRT-approved Radiology CE course for Radiologic Technologists

Our Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography is a radiology continuing education course is designed to help radiologic technologists understand the different steps to obtain accurate, consistent images according to body type, the abdominopelvic anatomy, and the pathologies that may affect the quality of the image.

Knowing that there are four different types of body habitus and that anatomy differs from one type to another, our Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography course presents the technical modifications that radiographers must apply to avoid any unexpected error caused by the anatomy of the patient. In addition, our this course describes the abdominopelvic image details that shall be clarified, allowing physicians to diagnose the cases of different patients.

The course also describes the best patient position to reduce magnification, as well as the high voltage and the exposure time product required to obtain better images of the abdomen and pelvis. Finally, the course defines the stochastic and non-stochastic effects of radiation, helps to organize the procedures to carry out physician orders, and describes how to use shielding appropriately during imaging to reduce the patient’s exposure to radiation. Abdominal and Pelvic Radiography is a basic-level continuing education course suitable for radiologic technologists and students in radiology technology programs.
