Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology
This program offers primary pathway certification options for MRI and Ultrasound. In addition, all advanced imaging modality graduates are eligible to apply for national certification examinations in their discipline immediately upon graduation through recognized certifying organizations such as ARRT, CCI and ARDMS.
The BS in MIT offers individuals the opportunity to expand their knowledge, skills and career options in the imaging professions.
Description of the Profession The medical imaging technologist in radiologic sciences is a skilled radiographer qualified to provide patient service in interventional procedures, computed tomography (CT), sonography (S), and magnetic resonance imaging (MR). These areas represent the most advanced imaging in diagnostic radiology. Medical imaging technologists use principles of radiation protection as they determine exposure factors and position patients for a variety of examinations. Many of the patient examinations are highly specific, using computers or computerized equipment. Medical imaging technologists are also capable of assessing the technical quality of the image, and providing patient care. The technologist must function as a member of the health care team.
