It should be kept in mind that there is no requirement to deploy CT technologists (not that I agree to that tradition). Most techs are not experienced with CT and get their training in that 3-day turnover period previously mentioned. I believe several technologists be specifically trained on CT, and all deploying techs have some basic CT experience. One technologist should be trained in ultrasound, and three in general radiology. We trained our general technologists to perform CT and had no problem in getting all techs up to speed on performing studies.
It must be kept in mind that most X-ray techs sent to combat are not CT techs, yet they must learn how to perform CTs in 3 days. Keeping the protocols simple and standard without much special 34 4 Introduction to Imaging of Penetrating/Perforating Blast and Ballistic Injuries sequences is key. Three technologists and a radiologist respond to every trauma code; one tech helps with movement and stabilization of the patient with a plate close by. When the patient is rolled to check the back for spinal deformity/ tenderness, abrasions, and rectal tone, the tech places the CXR plate under that patient’s chest.
