The Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences Technology degree is designed for students pursuing studies related to medical imaging that have completed a degree or certificate in radiologic technology, diagnostic medical sonography (MRI only), nuclear medicine or radiation therapy.
Job opportunities for CT and MRI technologists, sonographers and therapists exist in hospitals, surgical centers, clinics, physician offices and other healthcare facilities.
Online Concentrations: The Radiologic and Imaging Sciences major comprises the following online concentrations:
The Computed Tomography concentration focuses on the use of specialized x-ray equipment to create sectional images of the human body. Each cross-sectional image reveals complex information about body structures that are used for a variety of reasons (i.e., diagnostic, treatment planning, interventional or screening).
The Magnetic Resonance Imaging concentration focuses on the use of a powerful magnet, radio waves and computers to create sectional images of the human body. The images reveal complex information about body structures and the chemical changes that occur as a result of the onset of disease.
The university affirmatively strives to provide educational opportunities and access to students with varied backgrounds, those with special talents, and adult students who graduated from high school three or more years ago.
