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.
