Emphasis will be placed on pathology affecting the cranial cavity and neck in the application of computed tomography imaging. The uses for and administration of pharmacological agents for CT imaging will be included in this course. Prerequisites: Admission to the Computed Tomography (CT) Program, ARRT Registered Radiographer.  (New course, Fall 2015)


CAT* 202, CT Image Display, Post Processing and Quality Assurance I (2 credit)
This course will introduce students imaging parameters. The formation of computed tomography image is discussed as well as the essential component parts of a CT imaging system.  Prerequisites: Admission to the Computed Tomography Program, ARRT Registered Radiographer.  (New course, Fall 2015)


CAT* 203, CT Procedures and Instrumentation I (2 credits)
This course will introduce students to the set-up and operation necessary to acquire optimal images of the head and neck. Emphasis will be placed on the acquisition techniques required to obtain optimal images of the head and neck including their respective pathologies. Prerequisites: Admission to the Computed Tomography Program, ARRT Registered Radiographer.   (New course, Fall 2015)


CAT* 204, Clinical Experience I (4 credits)
This course introduces the student to the clinical setting and the practical skills necessary to operate computed tomography imaging systems.
