Computed Tomography (CT) uses specialized X-ray equipment to visualize cross-sectional anatomical structures inside the body for the demonstration of pathologies and disease processes to aid physicians in diagnosis and treatment planning.
The computed tomography program at HCC offers students an Advanced Technical Certificate specializing in computed tomography. Academic and clinical studies prepare technologists to provide quality patient care and perform studies utilizing imaging equipment, professional communication, and quality assurance in scheduled and emergency procedures.
Program eligibility is limited to ARRT-registered radiographers, radiation therapists or nuclear medicine technologists or equivalent (NMTCB) registration. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates will be eligible to take the post-primary certification exam offered by the ARRT for computed tomography.
This ARRT CT Exam qualifies all graduates to apply for Florida state licensure and operation of all CT equipment, including diagnostic scanners.
Nuclear Medicine Technologists will also be eligible to take the NMTCB-CT specialty exam.
