Medical Imaging known as Radiography or Radiology is the Technique concerned with operating radio imaging Machines such as X-ray, C.T. Scan, MRI and Ultrasound to create images of the human body for clinical purposes or medical science. It also involves the treatment of cancers and tumors with radiation.

Radiologic technology modalities (or specialties) Include.

  • Diagnostic Radiography deals with the examination of internal organs, bones, Cavities, and foreign objects; includes cardiovascular imaging and interventional radiography.
  • Sonography uses high-frequency sound and is used in obstetrics (including fetal monitoring throughout pregnancy), abdominal, Pediatrics, Cardiac, Vascular, and Musculo-skeletal region imaging.
  • Fluoroscopy live motion radiography (Constant radiation) is usually used to visualize the digestive system; monitor the administration of contrast agents to highlight vessels and organs or to help position devices within the body.
  • CT (Computed Tomography) which provides cross-sectional views (slices) of the body; can also reconstruct additional images from those taken to provide more information in either 2D or 3-D.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) builds a 2-D and 3-D map of different tissue types within the body.
  • Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive tracers which can be administered to examine how the body and organs function, for example, the Kidney or heart.
  • Radiotherapy uses radiation to shrink, and sometimes eradicate, cancerous cells/ growths in and on the body.
  • Mammography uses low-dose X-ray systems to produce images of human mammary glands.

Infrastructure

X-ray, fluoroscopy, Mammography, Ultrasound, CT scan, and MRI which is an inseparable part of students’ practical thus they get a real-time experience of the functioning of this equipment.

What can I do with an Associate’s Degree in Radiology?

With an associate degree, a graduate already has access to a slew of promising careers that have high growth potential. So, what jobs can you get with an associate’s degree in radiography or radiology?

Radiologic Technologists

Radiographers or Radiologic technologists are the primary options as to what jobs can you get with a Radiologic technology associate’s degree. These professionals create images of specific body parts to assist doctors in proper diagnosis. They perform X-rays and other diagnostic imaging examinations on patients. Radiologic technologists also provide patients with mixtures that can be taken orally so as to allow the soft tissues to be viewed clearly.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Technologist

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technologists are skilled in using magnetic resonance imaging scanners to collect images for analysis. MRI Technologists also assist physicians in diagnosing results and also in preparing patients for the procedure.

Computed Tomography (CT) Technologist

Computed Tomography Technologists produce cross-section images of patients’ internal organs and tissues using computerized tomography (CT) scanners. This imaging role also involves administering contrast materials and positioning patients to capture specific images required by the physician for accurate diagnosis. Similar to MRI Technologists, the majority of CT Technologists start their careers as Radiologic Technologists and advance as CT Technologists after undergoing advanced training and certification. Most CT Technologists work in hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers.

Medical Imaging Product/Sales Specialistt

Working closely with the marketing team, the Medical Imaging Product or Sales Specialist demonstrates extensive knowledge in the applications of various diagnostic imaging devices. The Medical Imaging Product or Sales Specialist also assists in organizing product training, roadshows, and other marketing activities to generate sales leads.

Radiologic Technology Instructor

The Radiologic Technology Instructor is part of the academe, teaching students about Radiologic technology. Educational institutions recruit practitioners with current ARRT license and at least one modality certification. Radiologic technology instructors may teach full-time or part-time.

What can I do with a Bachelor’s Degree in Radiology?

Having a bachelor’s degree gives graduates access to a decent-paying radiology tech career path in medical and business settings. So, where do radiologists work? For degree holders, they can find work at medical facilities, schools, science labs, and businesses.

Nuclear Medicine Technologist

Nuclear Medicine Technologist (NMT) involves administering radioactive drugs or radiation intravenously to patients for imaging and treatment. The NMT is a highly specialized health care professional that helps in the diagnosis and treatment of different conditions and diseases. The NMT role is a combination of skills in imaging, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology, patient care, and medicine.

Types of nuclear medicine technologists:

  • Nuclear Cardiology Technologist
  • Nuclear Medicine Computer Tomography Technologist
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Technologist
Radiologic Technology Clinical Instructor

The Radiologic technology clinical instructor is responsible for the planning, coordination, and implementation of radiologic technology clinical affiliation programs. The development of standard educational policies, formulating of curriculum and creating course materials are among the responsibilities of the radiologic technology clinical instructor.

Imaging Product Manager

From validating the potential customer’s need to determining a business model, the imaging product manager is responsible for the full lifecycle of an offering that culminates in defining solutions for the client. Product managers in the imaging industry draw insights from data to identify what customers require and work across disciplines to build the best solutions.

What is the Duration?

Duration : 3½ yrs

Highlights: The course curriculum includes 6 months internship period.

What is Radiologic Technologist?

A Radiologic Technologist, also known as medical radiation technologist and as radiographer, performs imaging of the human body for diagnosis or treating medical problems.The common subjects of basics in Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology, Microbiology, Surgery & Medicine taught in the 1st year will prepare the student to understand the nature of disease. The hands on experience in the department of Radiology from day one onwards will enable the student to understand the nature of the illness beginning with routine imaging to CT and MRI scans. The students will receive excellent and exhaustive training in these fields to be able to assist senior radiologists.

What is in Curriculum?

The course BSc in Radiology and Imaging Technology broadly lays emphasis on the following key areas:

What is in Curriculum?

  • Human Anatomy
  • Human Physiology
