"It's not easy being green" - Kermit the Frog
And it's not easy in the document-driven world of healthcare staffing either, but we'll try our best! We've already implemented the Employee Self Service program and we'll continue to look for more ways to recycle and reduce our consumption of paper goods. As we do, we'll be sure to alert everybody as to the changes and in the meantime feel free to call us with any suggestions.
A Mammography "Must Read"
Karen Seaman, R.T(R)(M) has been both a full-time and part-time Mammographer for DiagnosTemps during her radiology career. Most recently, Karen has taken the time to write a very informative book on mammography. Her book, "A Breast of the Situation", shares with its' readers stories of women and their experiences with mammograms and breast cancer. The book is tremendously enlightening! It is a "must read" for those that have ever wondered what the difference is between a screening exam and a diagnostic exam or what a stereotactic breast biopsy is.

With the passing of Senate Bill 202 the MRT license is now regulated by the Texas Medical Board(TMB). The old initial application and renewal processes that the Texas Department of Health (TDH) had are no longer in place. The TMB process will cost the same BUT the process will be much longer and will require A LOT more of your time. Including having to get fingerprinted! PLEASE - to avoid a lapse in your license get started on your renewal ASAP!!! We are hearing stories from Technologists right now that it is taking the TMB 3-6 months to process applications. Here are some helpful links:

DiagnosTemps Honored as “True Blue Business”
DiagnosTemps was recently invited to participate in the True Blue Business Recognition Series, a program that publicly recognizes exceptional companies and business owners in the Dallas-Fort Worth area that are “doing business right.”
We consider it a great honor to have met the guidelines set forth for the series. All involved felt as though gaining True Blue recognition was a validation of DiagnosTemps’ mission statement and principles.
DiagnosTemps’ President, Matt Broderick, was interviewed by Scott Sams, morning show host at KRLD NewsRadio 1080 and former news anchor at CBS 11 and WFAA-TV Channel 8 for the series.
A portion of that interview will air on KRLD 1080 and the press release is here.
