Sherman converts to digital radiology
Recognizing the importance of staying at the top of the technological ladder in chiropractic education, Sherman College has charted a path to the digital x-ray.
Beginning in January, Sherman will make the transition to digital x-ray processing. This $350,000 capital investment will not only be a great improvement on the college’s technological front, but it also will make significant improvements in the areas of course presentation, intern learning experiences, and patient service and care. Total conversion will be complete in July 2007.
“Sherman students will be learning the newest technology available, both in x-ray courses and in practical applications as interns in our on-campus Chiropractic Health Center,” says Sherman Radiology Department Chair Laura Greene-Orndorff, RT, DC. “This is a great advance in both the information and convenience it provides,” she adds.
Recognizing that not all students may be able to afford this technology immediately following graduation, Sherman College will continue to teach traditional x-ray processing. The college retains the capability of taking film x-rays because the x-ray unit remains the same. X-ray analysis courses will focus on the new digital process to be used in the Sherman College Chiropractic Health Center.
To prepare practicing chiropractors with the background knowledge necessary to approach this technology, the x-ray department will present a special workshop on digital x-ray for doctors attending Sherman College Lyceum 2007, to be held May 24-27 on the college campus.
