The medical imaging technologist in radiologic sciences is a skilled radiographer qualified to provide diagnostic imaging services in advanced modalities such as vascular and intervention procedures. Students will choose from imaging modality tracks including computed tomography, ultrasonography (both grey scale and vascular), echocardiography, Picture Archiving and Communication (PACS) and magnetic resonance imaging. These areas represent the most advanced imaging in diagnostic radiology. Effective medical imaging technologists utilize principles of radiation protection and physics as they determine imaging factors and position patients for a variety of examinations. They are also capable of assisting in surgical procedures performed during the examination, assessing the technical quality of the image, and providing basic patient care. The technologist must function as a member of the health care team.Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree and are eligible to take specialty examinations, depending on their major area of concentration. IU Kokomo campus has earned primary pathway status through the ARRT or CCI for ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging.
