Program Description

The Advanced Medical Imaging Associate of Applied Science Degree program provides educational opportunities to the post-graduate registered Radiologic Technologist, registered Radiation Therapist and registered Nuclear Medicine Technologist. It provides the students with the knowledge needed to perform MRI and CT exams and to sit for the Post-Primary Magnetic Resonance Imaging Certification examination and/or the Post-Primary Computed Tomography Certification Examination. The academic component is designed to meet content specifications of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Computed Tomography, as well as providing for continuing educational requirements. This Advanced Medical Imaging program consists of online courses as well as clinical education for the student. The clinical component is required to complete competency exams needed to sit for the MRI and CT certification exams.

Applicants must be a registered Radiologic Technologist, registered Radiation Therapist or registered Nuclear Medicine Technologist in good standing.

Students are selected on a first come, first serve basis. New students are accepted for Fall Semester. Clinical slots are limited. Clinical education credit will be considered for prior clinical experience.

After applying to ATC, applicants must contact program faculty to determine clinical credit and/or clinical slot placement. 

In order to begin the clinical requirements, students must complete a physical form, tuberculosis skin test, supply proof of immunization, undergo a background check, and submit to a drug screen test. Students completing the CT clinical education courses must provide their radiation dose history.

 

The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. The contact information for the JRCERT is as follows:
