Computed Tomography Program

The Computed Tomography Program provides the registered radiologic technologist with the advanced type of health professions work-based instruction that helps students synthesize new knowledge, apply previous knowledge, and gain experience managing the workflow. While enrolled in the Computed Tomography Program practical experience is simultaneously related to theory.  The Computed Tomography Program provides the registered radiologic technologist with the skills needed to prepare for the post primary examination offered by ARRT. 

Mammography Program

This course is designed to prepare the registered radiologic technologist to enter the advanced field of mammography.  The objective of the program is to provide the registered radiologic technologist with the training, knowledge, and skills needed to prepare for the mammography post primary examination offered by ARRT;  in addition, for entry level employment in mammography. 

 

A mammographer uses specialized x-ray equipment to obtain diagnostic breast images and breast tissue biopsies.  This specialized technologist is pivotal in the diagnosis of breast tissue abnormalities in both men and women.  Students will learn to position patients and manipulate equipment to provide quality images.  Furthermore, students will develop an understanding of anatomy, pathology, communication skills and specialty equipment.

 

The mammography course is offered each spring and fall semester.  Entire course length is sixteen weeks. Lecture and Laboratory are offered the first eight weeks as evening classes.  Clinical rotations are offered the second eight weeks as day time rotation, averaging 20 hours a week.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program builds a foundation of general principles for learning to operate magnetic resonance imaging equipment for the ARRT registered technologist.  The program focuses on building a sound understanding of the underlying scientific theory and routine clinical practice leading to magnetic resonance imaging. The Magnetic Resonance Imaging program also emphasizes the fundamental principle of magnetism and interaction of living matter with magnetic fields as well as introducing the concepts and scientific principles employed in magnetic resonance imaging.  The MRI Program provides the registered ARRT technologist with the skills needed to prepare for the post primary examination offered by ARRT.
