Course Series: Computed Tomography

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.

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.
