Computed Tomography Program Information and Admission Criteria

The CT certificate will provide technologists with the opportunity to learn Computed Tomography (CT) Imaging Technology, to gain practical clinical skills and to be prepared academically to sit for the ARRT CT Registry Examination. CT Certificate holders will enhance their job opportunities and become eligible to work with hybrid imaging systems that include CT such as PET/CT or SPECT/CT. This certificate is appropriate for technologists wishing to enter the field of CT imaging who have no previous CT experience; it allows them to meet the new requirements for ARRT Certification. Technologists who have worked in CT without formal academic training can meet the new requirements for ARRT Certification.
