The Computed Tomography imaging program, a specialty for radiographers, prepares the individual to use specialized equipment to visualize cross-sectional anatomical structures and aid physicians in the demonstration of pathologies and disease processes. Individuals entering this curriculum must be registered or registry-eligible radiologic technologists by the ARRT.
Course work prepares the technologist to provide patient care and perform studies utilizing imaging equipment, professional communication, and quality assurance in scheduled and emergency procedures through academic and clinical studies.
Graduates may be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist Advanced-Level exam in Computed Tomography. They may find employment in facilities which perform these imaging procedures.
ECC is approved by the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges to offer the Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology Curriculum. ECC has entered into a Level III Instructional Service Agreement with Johnston Community College and Vance-Granville Community College to better meet the needs of students and health care facilities across eastern North Carolina. This collaborative program is referred to as the Eastern North Carolina Consortium of Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging program. Each semester the curriculum is offered through ECC and taught at one or more of the colleges within the Consortium.
In all health science curricula, students are assigned clinical rotations with area health care agencies. Prior to or at any time after admission, the health sciences student may be required to submit to a criminal background check and/or drug screen.
Students may also be interested in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
