Computed Tomography Program
Computed Tomography (CT) is a specialized branch of radiology. A CT technologist works closely with patients and physicians to create 3-D images of inside the human body. This modality is a frontrunner in trauma intervention. CT technologists also help to diagnose strokes, heart attacks, cancer, and many other diseases of the human body using advanced imaging equipment.
