Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist. New research, though, suggests AI can help with this predicament by making MRI scans four times faster, getting patients in and out of the tube quicker.

Why Is Certification and Licensure Important?

Certification is an important hiring factor in the healthcare industry.  Employers are looking at certification as a way to assess whether an individual possesses the skills and knowledge required for successful performance in a particular job role. Why are employers looking for this assurance? It’s because they want to hire the best qualified individual who will make a positive contribution to quality patient care. Additionally, studies have shown that individuals who are certified in their field have higher salaries and better promotion opportunities.

By becoming certified in your field of expertise, and by maintaining your competency, you are saying to your employer that you:

  • Have met standards that have been established and verified by a third-party organization.
  • Are dedicated to maintaining quality in your work on a regular basis.
  • Certification demonstrates to your employer, and to the public, that you are committed to your profession and that you want to continue to learn and grow.
  • Some state and federal laws also require certification in order to fully practice in the field.
