**This CE activity is a video presentation and a post test on USB Flash Drive with multiple choice questions.

**This home study meets all 4 hours in Digital Radiography required by the regulations in the State of California.

This course was originally designed to meet the Digital Radiography portion of the California Department of Public Health Radiologic Health Branch 2013 CE licensure renewal rules for Certified Radiologic Technologists (CRTs). The new rules state that four of the 24 required hours obtained must be about digital radiography within the two years immediately preceding the expiration of your permit.
