Medical Imaging Technology Degrees
The Department of Medical Imaging Technology offers bachelor's degrees in five professional programs, the totality of which encompass the spectrum of imaging sciences. The curriculum of each bachelor's degree program provides the technical, scientific, and communication skills essential for the application of learned concepts. Each program prepares students for immediate employment, and for successfully passing the national and state registry examinations in each field.
Diagnostic Medical Sonography (also called sonography, ultrasound, or general ultrasound) uses high frequency sound wave imaging and Doppler instrumentation to aid in the diagnosis of pathology and disease processes.
Echocardiography is a safe method of obtaining ultrasound images for diagnosis of cardiac pathology in adult and pediatric patient populations.
Nuclear Medicine Technology is an imaging science that demonstrates pathology through physiologic processes, as opposed to detailed anatomic images.
Radiologic Science utilizes radiography, fluoroscopy, mobile and surgical radiography, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Mammography, and Cardiovascular Interventional Technology (CIT).
Vascular Technology utilizes ultrasound, Doppler, color Doppler and various physiologic testing procedures to diagnose disease of the vascular system.
