Computed Tomography Program
Thank you for your interest in the Computed Tomography program (CT) at Cleveland Community College. The CT program is administered through Continuing Education in the LeGrand Center.
Please read this information thoroughly. Admission to the CT program is competitive. We want to make sure you have the best possible chance of being selected by completing all processes and submitting all necessary documents completely, correctly, and by the deadline.
Computed tomography technologists operate advanced imaging equipment to obtain computer generated sectional images of the human body. CT technologists must be able to provide quality patient care while working closely with the radiologist in a fast-paced, high volume area.
CT technologists may be employed in a variety of settings including hospitals, physician offices and diagnostic imaging centers. According to the 2008-2009 Occupational Outlook Handbook, radiographers experienced in more than one diagnostic imaging procedure such as CT will have the best employment opportunities. Many hospitals and imaging centers are now requiring their CT technologists be registered in CT by the ARRT.
Interested students are encouraged to read the information available at arrt.org about requirements and eligibility for CT certification.
