Courses

COURSES:

CT 100 - Introduction to Computed Tomography 

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with information necessary to enter into the computed tomography clinical setting. Topics to include: history, screening procedures, safety precautions, contrast agents used in CT, contraindications, equipment operated, professional roles and behavior, professional attitudes and communications, processing of images, routine examinations and protocols utilized, image artifacts and compensation. Students will receive an introduction to the physics associated with computed tomography. Also included will be hospital and departmental organization, and hospital and program affiliation.
Prerequisite: Admission to Computed Tomography Program


MRI 101 – Introduction to Computed Tomography & Magnetic Resonance Imaging 

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with information necessary to enter into the computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging clinical setting. Topics to include: history, screening procedures, safety precautions, contrast agents used, contraindications, equipment operated, professional roles and behavior, professional attitudes and communications, processing of images, routine examinations and protocols utilized, image artifacts and compensation for both modalities. Students will receive an introduction to the physics associated with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Also included will be hospital and departmental organization, and hospital and program affiliation.
Prerequisite: Admission to the Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Programs

MRI 102 – Cross Sectional Anatomy and Pathology 

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with fundamental anatomy and pathology associated with computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging of the head, neck, face, spine, thorax, abdomen, and pelvis, upper and lower extremities.  The various structures will be demonstrated in the axial, sagittal and coronal imaging planes.

Prerequisites: CT 100, MRI 101, or CT 104 – Introduction to Computed Tomography or MRI 100, MRI 101, or MRI 104 – Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging  

CT 103 – CT Physics

This course is delivered in a traditional classroom style and provides the student with a comprehensive study of the physics associated with computed tomography. Topics will include: terminology associated with Computed Tomography, the history and generations of CT, EBCT, spiral scanning and multi-row scanning, CT equipment, image processing, filters and algorithms, image quality, image noise, advanced CT imaging options, artifacts, contrast administration, patient safety, quality assurance, radiation risk factors and dose.
Prerequisites: CT 100, MRI 101, or CT 104 – Introduction to Computed Tomography

Clinical Course:
The clinical component of the CT program is 400 hours. Clinical hours must be completed at two different approved sites. Students are assigned to clinical sites during the first semester of the program based on site availability and student needs.

CT 200 – CT Clinical 

Computed Tomography technologists operate advanced imaging equipment to obtain computer generated sectional images of the human body. Computed Tomography technologists must be able to provide quality patient care while working closely with the radiologist in a fast-paced, high volume area. 

The clinical portion of the Computed Tomography Program is designed to prepare students to be competent, efficient working technologists. Upon successful completion of the CT clinical course, students will have met the examination requirements for the ARRT, and be eligible to sit for the CT post-primary certification exam. Students are responsible for completing specified competencies and fulfilling ARRT requirements.
Prerequisite: CT 100, MRI 101, or CT 104 – Introduction to Computed Tomography
