Computed Tomography Technologists are highly skilled professionals trained to operate CT equipment. CT equipment produces cross-sectional images of patients’ bones, organs and tissue that are used to diagnose medical conditions in medical facilities and outpatient centers under the direct supervision of a health care provider.
The GRCC MiRIS CT program is designed to foster the skills and knowledge necessary for you to become a CT technologist. It also places emphasis on professional attitudes, values and behaviors that will encourage your professional growth. Your college course work will be delivered through an online environment. And your clinical learning experiences will be provided by affiliating hospitals and clinics. Both are equally important to the development of the competent CT technologist.
The CT program is a certificate program. You must have graduated from an accredited program and be a registered radiographer RT(R). The program has been developed to be consistent with standards and requirements of the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT). Upon completion of the CT program, you will be eligible to take the ARRT-CT exam. Upon passing the CT exam, Radiologic Technologists have earned their RT(R)(CT).
