Computed Tomography

Capture the big picture.

Computed tomography (CT) images provide cross-sectional “slices” of the body in 3-D, giving physicians valuable information. So your images matter. They can help examine a patient with internal injuries from a trauma, fast. Accurately measure a patient’s bone density to evaluate osteoporosis. Show even the smallest of bones and surrounding tissues to pinpoint spinal problems. And provide real-time guidance to surgeons during biopsies. More than images, you provide life-saving information.

Become a highly skilled advanced CT technologist.

As a CT student, you’ll advance your general radiology or other medical imaging background with a specialty in computed tomography. Working in clinical settings, you’ll assist physicians in the diagnosis of disease. You’ll work closely with a team of professionals to deliver expert, reliable and compassionate healthcare.
