Computed Tomography (CT) is an advanced diagnostic imaging modality that produces cross-sectional images of the human body.
To become a CT certified technologist, you must earn certification through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Primary ARRT certification in radiography, nuclear medicine, or radiation therapy includes 16 hours of structured education documentation of 125 procedures to validate clinical experience (www.arrt.org).
The Post-Certificate in Computed Tomography under the umbrella of the Radiologic Technology program at RVCC provides graduates from a Radiography program the opportunity for continued growth in an imaging modality. The post certificate program is designed using the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) curriculum guidelines (www.asrt.org) and the ARRT competency requirements to be eligible to become a certified CT technologist.
