Boyd Hospital Employee Earns Certification and Registration in Computed Tomography (CT) from American Registry of Radiologic Technologists
Amy McIntyre, CT, Mammography and X-Ray Technologist at Thomas H Boyd Hospital, has recently been certified and registered in CT by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). In earning this credential, she adds the initials “(CT)(ARRT)” after her name.
Amy is a 1998 graduate of SIU Carbondale, where she earned her Associates Degree in Applied Science. After graduating and passing her ARRT Registry in Radiography in 1998, she worked for Carbondale Memorial for a short time, then gained employment with St. John’s Mercy Medical Center from 1998-2001. In 2001, she joined the Boyd Hospital staff as a Full Time Radiographer. Amy is active outside of work leading the Jerseyville Girl’s On the Run group. In her free time, she enjoys camping with her family, watching her kids play sports, going to concerts and STL Cardinals games. Amy resides in Dow with her husband Ross, and three children, Vivian, Lydia and Harry.
ARRT's credential assures patients that Registered Technologists who conduct medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy have completed the prescribed educational preparation, passed the appropriate exam, and pledged to abide by stringent ethics requirements — all of which assist them in delivering safe and effective patient care. ARRT ensures their continuing education and ongoing ethics compliance by requiring annual renewal of certification and registration.
The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) promotes high standards of patient care by recognizing qualified individuals in medical imaging, interventional procedures, and radiation therapy. Headquartered in St. Paul, Minn., it tests, certifies, and annually registers more than 300,000 radiologic technologists across the U.S.
