New On-Campus C-Arm Unit Gives COD Radiography Students State-of-the-Art Training
Oct 10, 2016 9:33 AM - Students in the College's Diagnostic Medical Imaging Radiography (DMIR) program now have access to even more high-tech equipment with the recent purchase of a Model C Arm Fluoroscopic Unit. The equipment is standard in the field but many students don't see the unit on campus or when completing clinical work. "In a clinical setting, oftentimes students don't get the experience of running some of the equipment because of the fast-paced nature of the hospital setting," said Sue Bertellotti, DMIR assistant professor. "Having a C-Arm unit in a learning lab on our campus allows our students to practice in a stress-free environment, giving them valuable experience they need to enter the workforce."
