    MSRT Metro Regional Representative Sue McClanahan was recently asked the question, "Who was the First registered Radiologic Technologist in the state of Minnesota?"  Sue has not found the answer to the original question just yet, but she did find a very fascinating article about the first CT scan ever performed in the U.S. which was performed in Minnesota.  Please see the attached article.  We want to hear your stories! What practices did you do years ago, that the younger generations can't seem to understand? Send in your pics and stories today!

    MSRT Metro Region Information:

    On November 19, 2013, the MSRT Metro Region held their fall meeting.  It was held at the Affinity Federal Credit Union’s Conference Center in Roseville, MN.  We had 15 participants, therefore, our attendance is growing.  The speaker was Dr. Lee Kamman from the  Pulmonary and Critical Care Associates in St. Paul.  His topic was “From Cough to Oncologist And the Importance of Imaging to Get There”.  The discussion was based upon information on lung cancer,  knowing what it is, risk factors and then what to do about it.

    The attendees were radiologic technologists and students.  Some of the comments from the evaluations were:

              "Awesome speaker";

    "Well spoken";


    "It was useful learning about lung cancer"; and

    "Taking away information I can use in life and possibly in my job."

    Our next meeting will be February 6, 2013 from 6:30-8:30. We hope to get the Affinity Federal Credit Union again. The topic will be Pediatrics. See you there!

    Sue McClanahan, MSRT Metro Regional Representative

    What is right around the corner? National Radiologic Technology Week! It is the week we celebrate the vital work of imaging professionals. The first NRTW was held July 22-29, 1979, but was moved to the week around November 8th to commemorate the anniversary of the discovery of xrays by Wilhelm Roentgen on Nov 8th, 1895.

    How are you celebrating this special week? Let us know with stories and pictures. We would love to see what our fellow technologists are doing to celebrate.

    As President of the MSRT, I am grateful to our membership, committee chairs and board. Many have stepped up to spread the word of the MSRT and devoted much of their personal time to increase membership, membership benefits, and give us a fresh new look. What a great way to celebrate our 75 years as a society!

    Thank you for all you do!

    Jessica Nachreiner
