Medical Imaging Specialization

The  Applied Health Sciences BAS, Medical Imaging specializations in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Vascular Sonography have been developed solely for the continued education of licensed imaging professionals. Eastern Florida State College recognizes the need for continued education within the professional imaging community and offers this specific specialization to imaging professionals registered in Radiography, Sonography (MRI and Vascular Sonography tracks), Nuclear Medicine and Radiation Therapy.

Eligible students for the curriculum's MRI-Plan A, CT-Plan B or Vascular Sonography-Plan D tracks must have current licensure and be in good standing with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board. Applicants must also have as a minimum, an Associate in Science degree from an accredited college in one of the above disciplines.

Coursework is available in a convenient, fully online format that fits the need for flexible schedules. For those choosing the CT or MRI option, the online program is a cost-effective choice for technologists who are cross training and/or working in the desired modality (CT or MRI) for a minimum of 24 hours each week to meet the clinical placement requirement. Plus, because it's online, the program is available to eligible students throughout Florida and around the nation in keeping with EFSC's participation in the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). Out-of-State students should contact an advisor and reference the out-of-state student section of our eLearning website for additional details.

Eligible students can be granted up to 60 credits toward the BAS Medical Imaging Sciences specialization if at least one of the following is met:

  • Registered radiologic technologists who have completed an A.S. degree from a JRCERT-accredited radiologic technology program or a program offered in a college or university that holds regional accreditation
  • Credentialed diagnostic medical sonographers who have completed an A.S. degree in sonography from an educational program accredited by CAAHEP through the JRCDMS
  • Credentialed nuclear medicine technologists who have completed an A.S. degree from a JRCNMT-accredited nuclear medicine program
  • Credentialed radiation therapists who have completed an A.S. degree from a JRCERT-accredited radiation therapy program

Additional credits are awarded on a case-by-case basis with consideration given to program accreditation, program length and content, the applicant's performance in the program, and professional credentialing of the applicant.

In addition to the bachelor's degree enrollment steps, students eligible to apply for these Medical Imaging BAS tracks must also complete the separate health sciences application for the limited-access CT, MRI or Vascular Sonography Advanced Technical Certificate choice that is embedded in the BAS program curriculum.
