Role of the Computed Tomography (CT) Technologist

Computed Tomography (CT) is a pathway within radiology. CT equipment uses specialized ionizing radiation to create pictures of cross sections of the human anatomy.

CT technologists specialize in creating cross-sectional images that show soft tissue, bony anatomy, foreign bodies and pathologies, which help doctors diagnose and plan treatment of patients.

While students, CT technologists work under the supervision of seasoned professionals or radiologists.

CT technologists must be able to:

  • Work effectively with patients and health professionals
  • Operate sophisticated computer equipment
  • Observe radiation protection measures
  • Provide only the best in patient care
