Program & Emphasis Descriptions

Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Diagnostic Medical Sonography prepares you for a career as a sonographer, using ultrasound to produce images of organs, tissue and blood flow inside the body. Sonographers help detect heart disease and vascular disease and help perform fine-needle tissue guided biopsy procedures.

Emphases include:

  • Cardiac
  • Medical

Program & Emphasis Descriptions

Nuclear Medicine

Our Nuclear Medicine program trains you to become a nuclear medicine technologist, using sophisticated detectors interfaced with computerized imaging systems to create images of the patient’s body. 

Program Description

Radiation Therapy

As a student in Radiation Therapy, you'll learn to administer targeted doses of radiation to a patient’s body to treat cancer or other diseases. As the radiation strikes tissue, it produces highly energized ions that gradually shrink and destroy the nucleus of malignant tumor cells.
