Medical Imaging programs at Schoolcraft College prepare students for successful careers in the field of Radiology. These programs utilize a strong curriculum, quality clinical experiences, and a commitment to undergraduate education in the creation of images and treatment of patients using highly sophisticated equipment and techniques.
Schoolcraft College offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology. Radiographers are healthcare professionals responsible for producing images of the bones and organs of the human body. They operate radiologic equipment utilizing ionizing radiation and are responsible for creating high-quality radiographs. These medical images are used to diagnose and treat diseases. Upon successful completion of this program, students will be qualified to sit for the registry in their field of study.
In addition, an Associate of Applied Science degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound) is offered. Diagnostic Medical Sonography is a branch of diagnostic medical imaging. DMS is a medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow. These dynamic images are produced using non-ionizing ultrasound creating 2D and 3D images under the guidance of a licensed physician.
Additional Medical Imaging Programs are offered at Schoolcraft, which allow currently credentialed Imaging professionals the opportunity to advance within the profession. These include the opportunity to obtain training to test for credentials in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Mammography (M). Upon completion of one of these programs, students will be eligible to test for advanced registry certification by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
