Computed Tomography (CT) is an x-ray imaging technique that uses a computer to produce sectional images of the body to show anatomy and pathology at different levels.
In order to pursue CT, an applicant must be an ARRT registered radiologic technologist, or an ARRT or NMTCB registered nuclear medicine technologist, or an ARRT registered radiation therapist, who has completed their education through a hospital-based certificate program, an associate, or a bachelor degree.
Two program options for CT:
- Certificate Program-available for students who wish to pursue CT by taking the Radiologic and Imaging Sciences (RIS) courses, without the additional courses required for the degree.
- Bachelor’s degree Program-available for students who wish to pursue CT as part of the Bachelor of Radiologic and Imaging Sciences degree. The degree is comprised of a minimum of 120 credit hours from radiologic technology, nuclear medicine, or radiation therapy, Kent Core courses, upper division electives and courses required for CT in the Radiologic and Imaging Science (RIS) major.
3 semesters-fall, spring, and summer
Course Delivery Options:
- Online: all RIS courses are offered online
- Hyflex: Some courses are offered as HYFLEX with delivery through Zoom that are available two evenings each week for those who prefer a live synchronous class with the instructor. The classes are also recorded for students who wish to access the class online at a different day/time. These courses include CT Procedures I and II, CT Image Production I and II, and CT Techniques.
Clinical Education Courses:
Each semester offers a clinical education course to provide the clinical experience required to observe and perform CT procedures and to complete clinical competencies required by the ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists). Students complete 15 hours of clinical time per week each semester as a clinical site that has an affiliation agreement with Kent State. Students are responsible for seeking a clinical education site located in their geographical location.
Application Deadline: Deadline extended to August 1
Number of Students Accepted: Up to 25 students each year
