Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography

“A certificate in computed tomography is the credential technologists need to specialize in the imaging field and also advance a career as a radiologic technologist.”
Jenna Zetwick, Program Coordinator
Program Advantages

This certificate program targets existing radiologic technologists who wish to expand and diversify their clinical skills within the healthcare market place. With the exception of the clinical requirement, the program is designed to be an online experience. Students will learn how to demonstrate correct positioning skills, select proper technical factors, utilize appropriate radiation protection techniques, exhibit patient-centered skills, critique images to determine diagnostic quality, display proper work ethics, adapt standard procedures for non-routine patients, apply written communication skills to the construction of documents of record that are established professional guidelines, apply oral communication skills to the explanation of ideas and scientific terminology, and use technological resources effectively and appropriately, synthesize theory and concepts from the liberal education domain and other professions into computed tomography. Graduates can gain employment in hospitals, clinics, government agencies, or private physicians offices. Students may also continue their education and transfer directly into one of our own BS or BTech degree programs or to another college.

Professional Outlook

Employment of computed tomography clinicians is projected to grow 13 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Nationwide in 2016, there were 241,700 employed as noted by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. The median wage for magnetic resonance imaging technicians was $69,930 in 2017.
