Computed tomography (CT) is an x-ray imaging technique that uses a computer to produce sectional images of the body to show anatomy at different levels.
Two options for the CT Program
A bachelor’s degree in Radiologic and Imaging Sciences (BRIT) in CT is available for students who have graduated from an accredited program in radiologic technology, nuclear medicine or radiation therapy. Students must also complete Kent Core (general education) courses and 8 credit hours of upper division electives toward degree requirements.
Students also have the option to complete the RIS courses related to CT without completing other courses toward the bachelor’s degree.
Both options will provide the academic and clinical education necessary to sit for the ARRT certification exam in CT.
Two Instructional Delivery Options for CT:
1. CT Hybrid Program: almost all RIS courses related to CT are offered online through the Salem Campus except for CT Procedures I and II, CT Image Production I and II, and CT Techniques. These are offered face-to-face at the Salem Campus on Tuesday evenings in the fall, spring and summer semesters. This type of instructional method is provided for those students who prefer a direct interaction with the instructor.
