The BS in Medical Imaging prepares students to practice competently and effectively as medical imaging professionals in diverse healthcare environments. The academic and clinical foundation in the curriculum develops graduates with professional flexibility and adaptability to assume prominent roles and responsibilities after graduation in both career and scholarly pursuits.

Four Medical Imaging Programs:

  • Nuclear Medicine/Positron Emission Tomography (PET)
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Computed Tomography (CT)
  • Ultrasound

The Medical Imaging programs are 60 credit hour, two year programs. Each specialization contains 28 core course credits and 32 credits related to the specialty.

Certification Information

All specializations have been designed to meet competency requirements outlined by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
