Computed Tomography (CT) is a branch of radiology that employs specialized radiography equipment to produce sectional images of the human anatomy. The CT Technologist performs various diagnostic procedures under the supervision of a licensed radiologist or in most cases, a licensed technologist. In order to produce quality images, the CT Technologist must be able to work effectively with patients and health professionals, operate sophisticated computer equipment and observe radiation protection measures. 

Computed Tomography is a post-associate degree Advanced Technical Certificate program. Upon successful completion of the curriculum, the graduate will be eligible to apply to take the CT exam through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all courses. To continue in the program a student may repeat a course only one time and may repeat no more than two courses while enrolled in the program. The term “repeat” shall be interpreted to mean re-enrollment following withdrawal, drop or unsatisfactory grade.

A student seeking entry into the program must file a specific program application form and complete additional admission procedures as required. Information is available on the program website.
