Introduction to Computed Tomography
Middlesex Community College’s Computed Tomography (CT) program is designed to prepare certified Radiographers for immediate employment in the workplace as CT Technicians in hospitals, clinics, and medical offices. The program emphasizes that quality patient care will be provided by individuals who have received instruction based on educational and instructional guidelines consistent with the profession.
The Middlesex Community College Computed Tomography (CT) Certificate program is a two-semester program for certified Radiographers interested in a career as a CT Technician. The program accepts and starts a new class during the fall semester each year.
Following the successful completion of all Program requirements and obligations to the college, students are awarded Certificate in Computed Tomography and may sit for the professional Registry exam sponsored by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). A minimum score of 75 on the national post-primary certification examination is required for certification as a Computed Tomographer.
The program adheres to MXCC Student and Faculty Non-Discrimination policies in that there is no discrimination of student or faculty on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, marital or veteran status, sexual orientation, physical disability, or any other legally protected status.
