At Stanford University Medical Center our radiology department strives for better patient care through technologist education seminars. This not only enhances their skills and aptitudes, but also provides continuing education units towards their licenses. By providing in-house training we can provide continuing education units, which are relevant to their unique responsibilities within the department, but more importantly, to our community. Educational topics, which have been discussed, are found in the Workshops below, they include patient safety, positioning, radiation dose, iterative reconstruction techniques, and contrast-induced nephrotoxicity. These Workshops are held bi-annually, and rely on skilled and highly trained Stanford radiology specialists. These workshops also serve as a unique venue in which technologist's acquire higher degrees of knowledge regarding the technology. The feedback generated in these workshops is invaluable because it allows us to apply them to successive workshops as a feedback loop.
