MIT 103 Introduction to Medical Imaging


Classes Begin

Learn the history and science behind medical imaging in MIT 103, Introduction to Medical Imaging. This is a prerequisite course for MIT programs.

Note: The Medical Imaging Department has five different imaging programs. To be eligible for admission to any of these programs, specific prerequisites must be completed. View Program Selection Criteria and other pertinent application and selection information. Please note, the MIT 103 online course referred to here is available only to students who are not on campus.

Biology 200 Medical Terminology is offered every term and is a required prerequisite for the medical imaging programs.

Intro to Medical Imaging offers an orientation to the art and science of medical imaging. In this course, we discuss history and development of radiologic science, diagnostic medical sonography, vascular technology, nuclear medicine technology, medical ethics, health care industry, related professional organizations, and regulatory agencies.

Please note several important things:

  1. You must take MIT 103 as part of the freshman year prerequisite courses.
    MIT 103 is offered every term. You should take this course if at all possible prior to the spring term before the fall you plan to enroll in the program. (ex: Take before Spring term 2013 for Fall term 2013 program admission.)

  2. These programs are in high demand and waiting until spring term to take MIT 103 presents a risk of the class filling before you can register.
    If you find yourself in this situation, contact Debbie McCollam at, but remember, all other prerequisites must also be completed by the end of that spring term for you to be eligible to apply to the program. If you will not complete all by the end of spring, you can postpone MIT 103 until summer or the next academic year.

  3. There are two separate application processes, one for admission to the MIT program of your choice, and one for admission to Oregon Tech.
    Both applications must be completed no later than spring term for the program start in the fall. Please refer to the link above for specific deadlines and other information relating to all admission processes.
