Computed Tomography (CT or CAT Scan)

TMCC's Skills Certificate Program in CT is entirely online. Students complete all the didactic courses needed to take the national ARRT certification examination in CT. The ARRT requires that clinical competencies be completed before making an application for the examination. TMCC offers a clinical internship for students needing this component who are not able to cross-train in the facility where they are employed.

The American Registry for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) outlines how to qualify for certification in this modality. Students wishing to become MRI certified through TMCC may only complete a Post Primary Pathway program which requires the student to already be a registered technologist with the ARRT.

About Computed Tomography (CT)

CT, also known as CT scan or CAT scan, is a specialized test that produces cross-sectional images of the body using X-rays and a computer. These high-resolution images help assist the doctor in making a diagnosis that cannot typically be seen on plain X-ray images. CT is a commonly performed procedure in many radiology departments, and many radiology departments are looking for technologists who have both radiography and CT certifications through the ARRT for entry-level positions.
