Olympic Medical Center employee Sandy Caudill recently passed her computerized tomography (CT) certification exam through the American Registry of Registered Technologists (ARRT). CT technologists are radiologic technologists who specialize in taking cross-sectional x-ray images of the bones and soft tissues of the body.
“Sandy has been diligently pursuing this certification and we commend her for reaching her goal,” says Deby King, diagnostic imaging director, Olympic Medical Center. “This level of achievement in CT imaging certainly reflects her commitment to excellence for our patients.”
Caudill began her career with Olympic Medical Center in 2003 when she was hired as a student technologist. After graduating from the radiology technologist program at Pima Medical Institute in 2004, she continued at the medical center as an X-ray technologist.
To become certified in CT, one must meet clinical experience requirements and document completed procedures before signing the certification application. The purpose of clinical experience requirements is to verify that candidates have successfully completed a variety of clinical procedures and to show that candidates possess a comprehensive knowledge of the skills covered in the certification examination.
