The Radiologic Technology Program at RSCC offers Computed Tomography courses for registered radiologic technologists. These courses are intended for technologists who want to update and improve their job skills, want help preparing for the ARRT CT Registry Exam, or just want to learn more about CT. Didactic courses are offered in Fall and Spring. Technologists who do not have access to CT clinical experience can also sign up for clinical courses. Classes for Roane State’s Computed Tomography Courses are held in the evening at the Oak Ridge Branch campus.
CTR 110 COMPUTED Tomography Physics (3 credit hours, fall semester)
The basic principles of physics and instrumentation of Computed Tomography will be covered in this course. Topics that will also be included are the history of Computed Tomography, fundamentals of computers, digital imaging, image quality, and radiation protection. This course meets for three hours each week. It is intended to be the first of two Computed Tomography courses.
CTR 210 Computed Tomography Patient Applications (3 credit hours, spring semester)
The basic principles patient management and imaging protocols as it pertains to Computed Tomography will be covered in this course. Topics that will be included are patient care, cross-sectional anatomy, imaging procedures, post-processing techniques, special procedures, and quality control. This course meets for three hours each week. It is intended to be the second of two Computed Tomography courses.
CTR 112 Clinical Education I (3 credit hours, fall semester)
In this course students perform a variety of Computed Tomography procedures under the supervision
of qualified technologists at approved facilities. Students must complete a minimum of 125 exams in order to
sit for the ARRT Computed Tomography Registry. Co-requisite: CT Physics.
CTR 212 Clinical Education II (3 credit hours, spring semester)
In this course students perform a variety of Computed Tomography procedures under the supervision of qualified technologists at approved facilities. Students must complete a minimum of 125 exams in order to sit for the ARRT Computed Tomography Registry. Co-requisite: CT Patient Applications.
** Clinical Education courses are intended for Technologists who do not have access to CT experience through their employers. Technologists taking these courses will be assigned to an RSCC approved site for the semester for their clinical rotation (24 hours per week). No more than ten CT students will be admitted to each Clinical Education course. Clinical sites will be chosen in consultation with RSCC Radiologic Technology faculty. RSCC will make a reasonable effort to assign CT students to their preferred RSCC approved sites, but this is not always possible.
Note: These courses are not part of a TBR-approved degree or Certificate program and therefore, are not eligible for federal financial aid.
