Diagnostic Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging is an exciting, dynamic, and progressive field. Getting certified in general radiography opens the door toward specialty imaging modalities like CT, MRI, mammography, and more.

Interpersonal communication is an important skill in the field of imaging. If you like working with people, are adaptable to an ever-changing environment, and enjoy technology, then this is the field for you!

Diagnostic Imaging is a special admissions program. In order to apply, you’ll need to read and complete the program bulletin.
