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.

 

Modern Facilities

Our “energized” radiography laboratory features digital imaging equipment comparable to modern healthcare facilities for true-to-life experiences, including simulating examinations on a body phantom using a General Electric Proteus XR, a radiographic unit integrated with a Fuji SmartCR reader for distributed digital imaging applications.

Prestigious Affiliations

Partnerships with premier medical institutions enable students to gain exposure and experience in leading healthcare institutions.

Clinical Experience

Hands-on opportunities at some of the most prestigious medical facilities in the world, like Children’s Hospital, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Tuft’s New England Medical Center, provide a range of diverse and invaluable learning experiences.

A field of growth

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for CT scan technologists is expected to grow 9% by 2024, a faster rate than many other occupations. As the American population ages, there is expected to be an increase in medical conditions that require imaging as a tool for making diagnoses.

Well-prepared

With innovative training and clinical internship opportunities in New England’s premier healthcare institutions, our graduates gain a competitive edge to advance their careers as CT specialists. Graduating students are eligible to apply for certification through examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Well-paid

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for radiologic technologists, including CT scan technologists, was $58,120 in May 2015, with the highest 10% earning more than $81,660.
