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.

The LSC-Montgomery Computed Tomography program curriculum consists of 5 courses totaling 16 credit hours, and these are offered in one semester.  The didactic education courses (8 credit hours) are offered at the LSC-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/methodology, cross-sectional anatomy, patient care, and develop CT imaging skills, which give Medical Radiologic Technology (MRT) graduates an employment edge and increased career mobility.

Prospective applicants seeking admission into the program must be graduates of a 2-year JRCERT accredited Radiography, Radiation Therapy, or Nuclear Medicine Programs and must hold current ARRT or equivalent certification.

The Computed Tomography Certificate program is housed in Building B with the current AAS degree program in Medical Radiologic Technology in the Division of Natural Sciences and Health Profession (NASH).  The program plans to admit up to 15 students per cohort every Spring and Fall semester.

Licensure - Employment in this field requires Texas licensure from the Texas Medical Board/ American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (State & National).
