MRI Technologist

Learn More

MRI scanners use a magnetic field and radio waves (non-invasive) to produce detailed images of the inside of the body that may not be seen with an X-ray, CT scan, or ultrasound. These images are used by physicians to diagnosis diseases and injuries. An MRI technologist operates the MRI scanner and assists and guides patients through the scan. Upon completion of the MRI program, students will be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT-MR) exam (required for employment).

Computed Tomography (CT)

Learn More

CT scan is a detailed X-ray that produces cross sectional images of the body’s internal structures that aids in the diagnosis of medical conditions. A CT technician operates CT equipment, administers contrast agents as ordered, and positions the patient so precise images are captured. Must be certified in radiography (ARRT), radiation therapy (ARRT), sonography (ARRT or ARDMS), or nuclear medicine (ARRT or NMTCB) to be eligible to apply for the CT program. Upon completion of the CT program, students will be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT-CT) exam.

Neurodiagnostic (EEG)

Learn More

EEG identifies electrical activity in the brain that aids in the diagnosis and treatment of headaches, seizures, strokes, and comas. An EEG technician places electrodes to cranial surfaces and records an electroencephalogram. Upon completion of the EEG program, students will be eligible to sit for the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologists (ABRET) exam.

The EPiC Consortium Neurodiagnostic Technology (EEG) program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation for Education in Neurodiagnostic Technology. As a member of the EPiC Consortium, the West Shore Community College’s Neurodiagnostic Technology (EEG) program is CAAHEP accredited.
