Medical Imaging - Advanced Modalities
Diagnostic medical imaging utilizes several different technologies to visualize the human body for the purpose of diagnosis and analysis of medical problems.
About the Program
The certificate programs in Computerized Tomography (CT), Mammography and Magnetic
Resonance Imaging (MRI) at Columbia Basin College (CBC) build on the foundational
knowledge of the Radiologic Technology degree and prepare registered technologists
for exciting careers in advanced imaging.
The advanced certificate programs in Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Mammography, are designed to address competency development required by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) for the advanced level certification exams in their respective modalities. In addition to clinical competency, academic coursework is offered to prepare the student for the exam administered by the ARRT. Coursework includes sectional anatomy, physics and instrumentation. Additional clinical work beyond the allotted clinical assignments may be needed to satisfy the minimum number of exams necessary to qualify for the ARRT advanced level exams. The programs are designed for certified technologists registered by the ARRT in Radiography, Nuclear Medicine, or Radiation Therapy to receive additional training and qualification to prepare them for advanced certification. Applicants must have graduated from accredited programs as currently recognized by the ARRT.
