Program Description

Computed Tomography is an advanced radiographic imaging modality that utilizes highly collimated fan- shaped x-ray beam and array of radiation detectors to produce cross-sectional images of human body structures and organs needed by physicians for diagnostic purposes. Computed tomographic images can be reconstructed in various anatomical orientations to demonstrate image details that allow for better visualization of pathology, diagnostic analysis, and radiologic interpretations.

Lone Star College – Montgomery Computed Tomography Certificate program curriculum consists of 5 courses totaling 16 credit hours, which are offered in one semester. The didactic education courses (8 credit hours) are offered at the Montgomery campus in the evenings, while the clinical education courses (8 credit hours) are provided at affiliated clinical sites. The curriculum is designed to enable students to acquire knowledge in computed tomography physics, equipment operation and methodology, cross-sectional anatomy, patient care, and also develop CT imaging skills, which give Medical Radiologic Technology (MRT) graduates an employment edge and increased career mobility. 

The Computed Tomography Certificate program is housed with the current AAS degree program in Medical Radiologic Technology at the Division of Natural Sciences and Health Profession (NASH), in Building B.

(Prerequisites: AAS degree, ARRT Certification, and admission into the CT Certificate Program)
