Our online fluoroscopy continuing education (CE) course covers topics related to radiation safety of the patient and staff, patient care and management as it relates to fluoroscopy, contrast media used in fluoroscopy and finally the equipment used in fluoroscopy and common fluoroscopic procedures.

This CE course covers all of the topics that appear on the ARRT® Fluoroscopy Examination, and is suitable as a study guide for those preparing to take the exam. This course will also satisfy technologist’s fluoroscopy-related ARRT® CQR requirements.

This course also meets California Department of Public Health – Radiologic Health Branch (CDPH-RHB) requirements and can be taken by California radiologic technologists to meet their continuing education requirements of 4 CE credits in fluoroscopy.
