Comparison of radiologic technologist review system and registry scores
The purpose of this study was to determine if participation in the Abbot-Northwestern Developmental Testing Program (ANDT) improved the American Registry of Radiological Technologist (ARRT) Examination scores of Radiological Technologist. The study population was divided into two groups: participants and non-participants. The ANDT and ARRT raw scores (sub-section and total) were then analyzed using a two-sample analysis. The Spearman Rank Correlation was conduced to determine the significant of this relationship. No statistically significant difference was noted between the scores of the participants and non-participants. However, the sub-section scores for Radiation Protection, Radiation Procedures, and Patient Care and Management were significantly different for the participant group. The sub-section examination scores for Equipment Operation and Maintenance, Image Product and Evaluation were not significant.
