Do you want a career as a key player on a healthcare team that plays a vital role in diagnosing patients? In order to diagnose injury and illness, a physician will rely on medical imaging conducted by an MRI tech, CT tech, or nuclear medicine technologist. These technicians use radiation or magnetic fields to produce images of organs and soft tissue with specialized equipment, which are recorded on x-ray film or displayed on a video monitor and used to diagnose a disease or an acute condition.
The Computed Tomography program is made up of both academic coursework and clinical skills experience that is designed to prepare you for professional certification in this field. Our expert faculty will teach you how to interpret orders for diagnostic imaging procedures, apply radiation safety in a clinical setting, effectively communicate, and so much more! Once certified, you’ll be able to work in hospitals or medical imaging centers as an MRI tech, CT tech, nuclear medicine technologist, or radiologic tech.
If you want to start on a bold new career helping others, make it happen with the Computed Tomography program today.
