CT Program FAQ: Click to see answer

Question 1:  What is Computed Tomography (CT)?

CT is a technology that uses computer-processed X-rays to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas of the body, allowing diagnosis without invasive procedures. CT produces a volume of data that can be manipulated in order to demonstrate various bodily structures based on their ability to attenuate the X-ray beam. Although, historically, the images generated were in the axial or transverse plane, perpendicular to the long axis of the body, modern scanners allow this volume of data to be reformatted in various planes or even as volumetric (3D) representations of structures.

Approximately 12 students for each modality are accepted during each spring semester and start the programs the following fall semester.  This is a limited access program due to the clinical space available within Brevard County.
