Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) technologists are advanced certified imaging technologists. As a skilled professional you will use specialized equipment to produce cross-sectional images. These images aid radiologists in diagnosing disease and disorders. As a CT technologist, you’ll be knowledgeable in the areas of anatomy, patient care and safety, radiation protection, procedure protocol, and more.

What are the features of Casper’s program?

This certificate program consists of online and clinical education. If you are a working technologist, you can continue in your full-time job. This program takes about 10 months to complete and is designed to provide skills for:

  • Registered radiologic technologist – radiographer or radiation therapist
  • Registered nuclear medicine technologist, ARRT or NMTCB
  • Those who are registry eligible

This program will provide you with the requirements needed to take the ARRT exam in computed tomography. Following successful completion, you will receive a certificate in computed tomography. You can take the advanced credentialing ARRT post-primary exam in CT.

This program begins in July and continues through the following May. Casper College provides our students with excellent clinical settings in Casper, Gillette, Sheridan, Douglas, Rawlins, and Lander. These clinics allow you to gain hands-on experience. You can select locations to complete the clinical part of your education. You can also complete your clinical education at another site not listed above. It is your responsibility to complete the required clinical objectives.

What are the special admission requirements, if any?

Review the information in the CT Program Admissions Guide (PDF). It outlines the necessary pre-requisites and application process for program eligibility.
