The TCA Chiropractic X-Ray Technologist (CXT) 48 Hour Training Program is a hybrid educational program with two live weekend sessions for a total of 26 classroom hours and a 22-hour distance learning component. Applicants must have an email address, computer access, and internet service to complete these requirements. All classroom and distance learning work must be completed before course credit is allowed.

Educational sessions will provide participants with a fundamental knowledge of the nature and production of x-rays, along with radiation protection, radiographic techniques, patient care and positioning, equipment maintenance, radiographic anatomy, x-ray quality control, and instruction on Tennessee statues and rules pertaining to the chiropractic x-ray technologist. A primary objective of this seminar will be to prepare participants to obtain a radiograph with the greatest amount of clinical benefit and with the least possible risk to both the patient and the operator.

 

If you are unable to attend the upcoming CXT 48 Hour Training, but are interested in future dates, please contact the TCA to be added to our list of interested applicants.
