Medical Imaging Technology Program

The Medical Imaging Technology Program at Indiana University School of Medicine is the oldest radiologic sciences program in Indiana to offer students a bachelor of science. This program, which some graduates complete within a year, enables students to gain expertise in several types of clinical imaging, including bone densitometry (BD), cardiac or vascular interventional radiography (CI/VI), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography (M), echocardiography (RDCS), vascular sonography (RVT), and diagnostic medical sonography (RDMS).

Students can choose to specialize in one of these modalities or opt to complete a non-clinical degree entirely online.

What is a medical imaging technologist?

A medical imaging technologist is a skilled imaging professional qualified to provide exemplary patient service in adult or pediatric echocardiography (AE/PE), cardiac or vascular imaging (CI/VI), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), echocardiogram (ECHO), mammography and sonography. Medical imaging technologists are highly specialized professionals proficient in the principles and procedures necessary to provide diagnostic imaging and patient care for a variety of essential examinations.

What is diagnostic medical sonography?

Diagnostic medical sonography is a type of medical imaging that uses ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound waves can be bounced off tissues by using special devices. The echoes are then converted into a picture called a sonogram. Ultrasound imaging allows an inside view of soft tissues and body without producing harm or bio-effects to patients. Sonographers exercise a high level of technical skills and judgment while producing ultrasound images.
