Letter to Editor - By Kristi Rulli, President

During these challenging times and in the midst of a global health crisis, who are our frontline heroes?

You might be surprised to learn that radiologic technologists play an important role in the diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19.

Chest x-rays and CT scans are critical diagnostic tools in identifying the pneumonia-like complications of coronavirus; Interventional Radiology is used to treat life-threatening clots in the lungs When patients are placed on ventilators for breathing assistance, radiologic technologists perform imaging procedures so appropriate placement can be verified and treatment can be delivered.

Each of these imaging procedures is performed by a professional known as a radiologic technologist. Radiation therapists are also essential workers on the frontlines in the fight against cancer. Their work with oncology patients is crucial, and it continues every day, even during a pandemic.

So let us give a big salute to the doctors, nurses and other hardworking health care professionals. But here is a special tip of the hat to the more than 6,000 registered and certified radiologic technologists making a difference for patients every day in the state of Kentucky.

To us, they are unsung heroes, and we offer our heartfelt thanks for everything they do.

The KSRT 6th Annual Jackie Darling Memorial Seminar and the Student Seminar have been cancelled 

JDMS - April 4, 2020 - Cancelled

Student Seminar - April 17, 2020 - Cancelled

This action comes after careful consideration of options, and is being taken in the best interests of our members and the public.

Due to the potential risk associated with COVID-19, several healthcare facilities in Kentucky have instituted policies that would prohibit employees from attending any conferences or meetings at outside venues coupled with Governor Beshear declaring a state of emergency, has forced the Board to make this difficult decision. 
 
These unfortunate circumstances mark the first time that the Jackie Darling and or the Student conferences have been cancelled. With the uncertainty of what lies ahead, or how long the current situation will last, it is not feasible to reschedule the conferences at this time. All previously registered participants will be issued a refund.

We would like to thank the members, speakers, vendors, healthcare organizations and educational institutions who have supported the KSRT and had planned to attend these conferences.   

We hope everyone remains safe and healthy.
