The Imaging Sciences Program offers degrees for radiology and ultrasound. The radiologic technologist prepares and positions patients for exams and operates x-ray equipment. The ultrasonographers use high frequency sound waves to produce dynamic images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
Imaging Science graduates can work in hospitals, physicians’ offices, clinics, federal and state health agencies, and certain educational institutions. The Associate of Applied Science program includes courses in the following areas: technique, exposure, positioning, protection, physics, patient care and ethics. Clinical practice and supplemental instruction are provided in accredited hospitals and clinics. Upon completion of the ultrasound program requirements, graduates are registry eligible and must have worked for 12 months to take the National Registry Examination.
The Imaging Sciences program is a selective admission program. When you apply to the College, you will be accepted into Healthcare Support with a concentration in Imaging Sciences while you complete the prerequisite requirements. The Imaging Sciences program accepts a limited number of students each year and there is a separate application process. Contact your campus of interest below for more details.
Graduates of our Imaging Sciences program are working in hospitals, clinics, imaging centers and doctor’s offices. Some of our graduates choose to transfer to a four-year institution using our articulated transfer opportunities available with IUPUI, IUK, and University of Southern Indiana for radiology graduates. Students are encouraged to review these options with their advisors.
