Computed Tomography Certificate Program
Computed Tomography (CT) also known as Cat Scan, is an advanced level imaging procedure. CT uses x-rays and computer processing to produce cross-sectional images of the body part being scanned. CT is an invaluable radiologic diagnostic tool.
The online CT program is designed to include both online and clinical applications to prepare students to produce images for diagnostic, treatment planning, and investigative purposes. The certificate courses are sequenced so the registered radiographer can take the twenty-two credit hour courses and obtain knowledge of basic computed tomography and clinical applications. Upon completion of the program, the student will be prepared to sit for the ARRT advanced registry in Computed Tomography. The program courses will be taught online. Students are responsible for gaining approval from a clinical site in their area for the competency-based clinical applications course.
The two-semester Computed Tomography program begins in the fall semester only. Students will be required to have a Criminal Background Check and Drug Screening as part of the admissions process. Proof of current CPR certification is required before entering the CT clinical education centers. Applicants must be registered and in good standing with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in radiography, nuclear medicine, or radiation therapy. Applicants registered and in good standing with the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) are also eligible. New registry eligible radiography graduate acceptance is contingent upon passing the ARRT Radiography exam within one month of graduation.
