Overview 

The healthcare industry is currently undergoing major changes in an effort to control costs and increase efficiency without compromising patient care. In the past, this care was delivered through healthcare specialists.

Today, many employers are seeking to deliver these services through the talents of multicredentialed healthcare professionals.

The University of Cincinnati offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Advanced Medical Imaging Technology to meet the evolving demands of the marketplace and to provide maximum flexibility to today’s healthcare student.

After taking two years of general education courses, Advanced Medical Imaging Technology students enter the professional education curriculum.  Students will combine classroom and clinical training to become competent in two or more healthcare medical imaging specialties.

Upon completion of the professional curriculum, graduates are eligible to sit for national board exams, a necessity in nearly all healthcare fields.

The imaging modalities available to study are: Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Technology. 

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is the medical specialty that utilizes magnetic fields and their properties in the diagnosis of disease and the analysis of human anatomy.  Training in Magnetic Resonance Imaging is twelve consecutive months in duration and will be delivered through a combination of classroom lectures, labs, and clinical site placements.  Students successfully completing the curriculum will have fulfilled requirements to sit for the nationally administered board examination.

Mission and Goals – Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program

The goal of this program is to produce competent, multi-skilled, Magnetic Resonance Imaging technologists.  Graduates of this program will have obtained the level of didactic and clinical training necessary to meet eligibility requirements for national board examinations in Magnetic Resonance Imaging.  While passage of these examinations are up to the individual and therefore cannot be guaranteed by the program, it is the program’s goal to supply each graduate with the necessary level of training and experience to adequately prepare for these examinations.

Nuclear Medicine Technology

Nuclear Medicine Technology is the medical specialty that utilizes stable and radioactive isotopes in the diagnosis and treatment of disease.  Training in Nuclear Medicine Technology is twelve consecutive months in duration and will be delivered through a combination of classroom lectures, labs, and clinical site placements.  Students successfully completing the curriculum will have fulfilled requirements to sit for the nationally administered board examination.

Mission and Goals – Nuclear Medicine Technology

It will be the goal of this program to produce competent, multi-skilled, imaging technologists.  Graduates of this program will have obtained the level of didactic and clinical training necessary to meet eligibility requirements for national board examinations in their chosen modalities.  While passage of these examinations are up to the individual and therefore cannot be guaranteed by the program, it is the program’s goal to supply each graduate with the necessary level of training and experience to adequately prepare for these examinations.
