The Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) recently offered the first computed tomography (CT) exam for nuclear medicine technologists (NMTs). On November 15th, a total of 102 individuals passed the first exam with an average passing scaled score of 81.75 (a scaled score of 75 was needed to pass). They all now hold the credential of NMTCB(CT).
Of the 102 new CT credentialed individuals, 94 individuals are certified as CNMTs and eight (8) are registered ARRT(N). Thirteen individuals hold the Positron Emission Tomography (PET) credential and six hold the Nuclear Cardiology Technologist (NCT) credential. Seven individuals hold four NMTCB certifications (CNMT, NCT, PET, and NMTCB(CT)).
The next CT exam will be offered April 17, 2015. The application deadline for this exam is March 1st. As with the other NMTCB exams, we have high standards for eligibility to sit for the NMTCB(CT) exam. All examinees must show proof of education specific to CT. Fortunately, most new NMT graduates meet these educational requirements. All others are required to have a minimum of 35 educational contact hours specific to CT. At least four hours must be in each of the following categories: contrast administration, cross-sectional anatomy, x-ray physics, CT radiation safety. In addition to classroom hours, examinees must also have 500 cli
For maintenance of certification, anyone holding the NMTCB(CT) credential must earn 12 continuing education hours specific to CT every two years. This is in addition to the 24 hours required to maintain the CNMT credential.
The NMTCB is working with the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Joint Commission and the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) to incorporate the NMTCB(CT) credential into their respective accreditation standards. We are also working with states and the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD).
Many NMT educational programs have adjusted their curriculum to meet the educational and clinical requirements for students to be eligible to sit for the NMTCB(CT) exam upon graduation. The NMTCB will be offering a $30 discount (from the $180 application fee) for new graduates who apply to take the NMTCB(CT) exam at the same time as the CNMT exam.
The vision of the NMTCB is to be recognized as the certification organization of choice for nuclear medicine and molecular imaging. We currently offer five examinations for nuclear medicine professionals: Certified Nuclear Medicine Technologist (CNMT), Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Nuclear Cardiology Technologist (NCT), Computed Tomography (NMTCB(CT)) and Nuclear Medicine Advanced Associate (NMAA). We work hard to keep our finger on the pulse of the profession to make examinations that are both relevant and necessary for nuclear medicine professionals.
....In the news!!
Trimodality imaging system is designed to capture high-quality images from PET/CT and MR scanners, then fuse them with Integrated Registration* software. You can utilize leading-edge PET,CT and MRI technologies — together or individually — providingunparalleled choice, flexibility and clinical value....
Researchers and clinicians can access new technology to potentially
improve image quality. See fine vessel detail. Visualize cardiac anatomy
and function. Detect small lesions. Monitor response to therapy.
And forge a smarter path from clinical research to patient care.
Combining mature, robust technologies with new breakthroughs,
Trimodality imaging is intended to be one of the best investments
available for researchers and multi-specialty hospitals. That’s why
we celebrate it as another step toward helping you make the best
decisions for your patients. The PET/CT Training Institute is now offering online self study courses to technologist who need to start taking the courses needed to prepare for the ARRT or NMTCB Board exams to operate these systems.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
A million thanks to you for your all-out support in my preparation for the NMTCB exam.
I will not fulfill my dream of achieving the NMT Certification without the PET CT
Training Institute. I appreciate all your effort even when I already completed my
Again, thank you very much!!!!
