Credentialed In Bone Densitometry

Stephanie Jennings, a radiologic technologist at Cookeville Regional Medical Center, recently earned national credentials in bone densitometry. Jennings earned the credentials from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). She works in The Women’s Center at Cookeville Regional’s Outpatient Imaging Center. This certification is voluntary, not mandatory, and Jennings underwent extensive preparation to get ready for the certification. The Outpatient Imaging Center at Cookeville Regional is the region’s first “all digital” full-service imaging facility and is located at 251 West Third Street – just one block from the hospital. The ARRT is a nationally recognized organization that promotes high standards of patient care by recognizing qualified individuals in medical imaging, interventional procedures and radiation therapy.
