Our 2013 Fall Technologist Educational Meeting was held Oct 5 in Corpus Christi.
Program Chair, Amanda Roby, CNMT, in cooperation with Technologist Section leadership, developed an educational program focused on quality, knowing that quality patient care and imaging begins with the technologist, so the theme for this year's meeting was, "It starts with us!"
The final program schedule is below. Approximately 60 of us joined with our colleagues for some excellent education and opportunities to visit with representatives from Astellas Pharma, Bayer HealthCare & Algeta, Nuclear Imaging Services, Southwestern Imaging, and Triad Isotopes.
