Pathway to CT certification

Produce cross-sectional images using advanced technology

Your structured education will provide you with the opportunity to develop mastery of discipline-specific knowledge, integrate theory into practice, and hone effective and critical thinking skills required to demonstrate professional competence. Your clinical education will verify that you have demonstrated competency performing the clinical activities fundamental to Computed Tomography (CT). Together, these educational practices will help you master the knowledge you’ll need to obtain your credential.

What can you do with a Certificate in Computed Tomography?

The Computed Tomography (CT) program prepares radiographers to work in medical facilities as CT technologists. CT technologists are medical personnel who perform a variety of imaging procedures using a rotating x-ray unit and sensor assembly to observe “slices” of anatomy within the body. CT technologists are responsible for obtaining high-quality diagnostic images, maintaining patient safety and providing optimal patient care.

You will be eligible to take the national certification exam in CT by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) upon completion of the program.
