The Chicago Area Radiation Therapists (CART) was started back in 1976 as a not-for-profit organization by a group of radiation therapists in the Chicago Area. They started a society through continuing education, refresher courses in relevant subjects, representation of radiation therapists in other professional organizations, and representation in special interest projects-such as development of state licensing laws for all radiation users.
In October of 1977, CART became affiliated with the Illinois State Society of Radiologic Technologists (ISSRT) as District 13. By doing so, we came under the umbrella of American Society of Radiological Technologists (ASRT). Today, CART is stronger then ever. We offer 3 meetings, totaling over 12 CE credits per year. Our speakers range from Physicians, Physicists, Therapists, Nurses, Social Workers, Dosimetrists and other public health officials.
