Medical Imaging: High tech, high reward.
Medical Imaging is the health profession concerned with the direct administration of radiation, primarily x-rays, in disease diagnosis and injury assessment. Technological advances and the addition of new imaging modalities now place medical imaging among the most dynamic, expanding and high demand fields in healthcare.
An imaging science professional must apply their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, patient positioning, radiation protection, and image production and evaluation in the performance of their responsibilities.
The program gives students a variety of options to explore their interest in the sciences of medical imaging. You can develop your skills in specialized areas like computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography and others. In addition to student-focused instruction and laboratory learning experiences, you will gain hands-on experience through supervised clinical training at hospitals and clinics.
