Note: To qualify for this course of study, students must already be certified as a radiologic technologist with the State of California.
The imaging program at Folsom Lake College prepares students for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ (ARRT) certifications in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and vascular interventional radiography (VIR). The role of the CT, MRI, or VIR technologist is to perform the technical aspect of routine and complex procedures in the field of radiology that are involved in the detection, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases.
Students will have an opportunity to participate in lectures, simulation training, as well as actual clinical site rotations that are consistent with recommended curriculum material established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be able to operate CT, MRI, or VIR equipment and perform technical aspects of procedures consistent with protocols in a proficient manner.
