Program Details

Forsyth Technical Community College has a certificate program for those interested in Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology. 

Before considering the program applicants must have successfully completed a primary modality educational program accredited by a mechanism acceptable to American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and hold a primary registry in radiography or radiation therapy by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or, in nuclear medicine technology by the ARRT or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB). 

Graduates can work in hospitals, medical centers, cancer centers, physician’s offices, or freestanding image centers. The two-semester curriculum is quite rigorous but it prepares students to be proficient in using specialized equipment to visualize cross-sectional anatomical structures and aid physicians in the demonstration of pathologies and disease processes.  

The overall program has three main goals for students: (1) Improve the overall quality of the practice of Computed Tomography by educating technologists in the elements essential to the post primary practice of computed tomography, (2) Prepare technologists to successfully challenge the ARRT Post-Primary Certification Examination in Computed Tomography and (3) Utilize innovative, educationally sound instruction to produce knowledgeable graduates dedicated to promoting excellence in health care by providing superior patient care.
