Radiologic Technologist, CAT and MRI


Students enrolled in the Radiologic Technologist degree program are prepared for entry-level employment in the growing field of radiologic (X-ray) technology. Radiologic technologists are needed in every health care setting, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, health centers and physicians’ offices. Students learn to produce radiologic images of body parts as an aid in the diagnosis of disease and injury. Clinical experiences in a variety of health care facilities are included. Graduates have the opportunity to enter careers with strong earning potential.

Graduates are eligible to take the Radiologic Technologist Radiography (RTR) (R) certification examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists required for employment
in this field.

The two-semester Computed Assisted Tomography (CAT Scanning) program is designed for certified radiologic technologists, radiation therapists or nuclear medicine technologists who are seeking to expand their skills for specialization in computed assisted tomography (CAT) scanning. The field of CAT or computerized tomography (CT) imaging uses scanners to produce images of the human anatomy as an aid in the diagnosis of disease and injury. CT scanning technologists work in hospitals, clinics, health care centers and private imaging radiology departments.

The two-semester Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI Scanning) program is designed for certified radiologic technologists, radiation therapists or nuclear medicine technologists who wish to expand their skills for specialization in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning. MRI uses scanners to produce images of the anatomy as an aid in the diagnosis of disease and injury. MRI technologists work in hospitals, clinics, health care centers and private imaging radiology departments.
