Introduction to Radiologic Sciences and Imaging
Radiologic technologists, nuclear medicine technologists, and advanced imaging technologists are dedicated to providing patients with the highest-quality care and supporting physicians and other medical professionals in conserving life and preventing disease. They use a variety of procedures and sophisticated equipment for imaging body structures and organs as well as perform interventional procedures designed to treat various disease processes.
Kettering College radiologic sciences and imaging programs are competency-based. They provide a combination of didactic theory and clinical applications of that theory to prepare students to meet the challenges of advancing technology in the current health care environment.
Kettering College offers the following:
Radiologic technology: Prepares students to perform radiographic procedures, administer basic levels of patient care, and qualify for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) registry examination.
Nuclear medicine technology: Prepares students for matriculation into The University of Findlay Nuclear Medicine Institute, where they learn to perform nuclear medicine procedures, administer basic patient care, and qualify for the ARRT registry examination in nuclear medicine technology or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) examination.
Advanced imaging technology: Prepares graduates of accredited radiologic technology, nuclear medicine, or radiation therapy programs to perform imaging procedures in one or more of the following modalities; CT, MRI, vascular interventional, and cardiovascular interventional technologies.
