Computed Tomography (CT) Certificate

Program Overview

If you would like to combine working in healthcare and working with computers, a career in Computed Tomography may be for you. Computed Tomography is a rapidly growing advanced imaging technology that creates cross-sectional and three-dimensional images of the body using radiation and computers.

By completing the Certificate in Computed Tomography you will study normal cross-sectional anatomy and learn how common pathologies appear on CT images. You will gain an understanding of the physical principles of CT and how the CT equipment functions as well as radiation protection and safety measures specific to CT. You will also learn the special requirements needed for caring for patients in CT departments.

This program will run from February through July. Classes will be a hybrid format providing students with both online and in person classroom time.

Unique to the program here is the clinical practicum. Students are provided with a clinical location in order to gain experience on CT procedures and acquire the competencies necessary for eligibility of the ARRT CT examination.
