Bachelor of Science in Medical Diagnostic Imaging

Increased technology has prompted many hospitals to seek to employ RTs who have been trained in two or more skilled areas. This program provides you the opportunity to pursue cross-training in various areas of advanced imaging. During different times of the year, you may be able to attend course sequences in modalities such as computed tomography (CT), ultrasound (US), cardiovascular-interventional technology (CVIT), mammography (M), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or bone densitometry (BD).
