• Reflects the Examination Content Specifications for Bone Densitometry
• Includes at least one credit from each of the document’s major content categories of patient care, image production, and DXA procedures
• You will need to complete your Structured Education requirements within 24 months before you submit your post-primary application.
After you finish each activity, you will log in to your ARRT® account and use the post-primary tool to document your structured education. The ARRT® reviews and approves submissions within two business days. Occasionally, additional time is necessary.
