Paper Abstract

In the past two decades, new radiographic devices enhanced by advanced space age electro-mechanical engineering, i.e., automated x-ray generators, examination tables, automatic collimators, high speed patient to radiologist film transports, highly sophisticated closed-circuit television systems, disc and tape storage of x-ray produced video images, and others continue to come off the manufacturer's drawing board and into radiological departments daily. This new technology intensifies a longstanding and rapidly growing problem the severe shortage of trained and qualified professional radiological engineers. Equipment manufacturers and their representatives have been hard pressed to provide competent service to this ever increasing demand. Recognizing the enlarging dimension of the problem, the Department of Radiological Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles, in March of 1970, took two giant steps first, the establishment of an in-house radiological engineering staff and second, the development of a two year training program for Radiologic Electronic Specialists. Class number eight has convened with their studies commencing on August 1, 1977.
