Welcome to the Computed Tomography Program

Computed Tomography (CT) technologists use ionizing radiation to create three-dimensional images for diagnostic purposes. They work in hospitals, clinics, labs, and outpatient centers. Technologists working in CT produce cross-sectional x-rays using a rotating x-ray unit. A computer then uses these images to create a 3D image used for diagnosis.

ACC’s Computed Tomography certificate program is offered in the Fall and Spring semester. Learn more by following the links below, or check out the Computed Tomography FAQ.
