​Welcome to PET/CT

Welcome to the Positron Emission Tomography / Computed Tomography (PET/CT) Technology Program at the University of Findlay! Thank you for your interest in our program.

The University of Findlay's PET/CT Program prepares students for an exciting career in imaging. Upon successful completion of the program, students may receive a Certificate of Completion in PET/CT, an Associate of Arts with a major in PET/CT or a Bachelor of Science with a major in PET/CT from Findlay and are eligible to apply for the national certification exams offered in PET and CT administered by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and/or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB).

In the fall semester of their pre-clinical year, students apply to the PET/CT program. Example criteria used to determine admission include the academic record and related field experience. Acceptance into the program is not guaranteed and admission is competitive. Please note that students entering the PET/CT program must be board certified in nuclear medicine technology by the ARRT and/or the NMTCB or must be board eligible when entering the PET/CT program and then be board certified by the end of the first semester of the PET/CT program.

The program courses are oriented toward job performance, theory and clinical correlation. Students are placed in practice settings where they will garner experience with a PET/CT scanner and a CT only scanner. They are also oriented to the need for continuing education and leadership in the planning and management of PET/CT services. The program is specifically designed to facilitate student progress and promote career development in any geographic location.

PET/CT technologists are medical professionals that develop, perform and troubleshoot imaging procedures. PET/CT imaging is used for diagnosis, prognosis or risk determination and monitoring of therapy.

A PET/CT technologist must have a broad background in chemistry, biology, mathematics and molecular diagnostics to function in a PET/CT department. Concepts in management, regulation and accreditation and statistical concepts are also of fundamental importance.  

On behalf of the PET/CT Program, we extend our best wishes for your success in your academic career here at Findlay. Please explore our website and discover why Findlay may be the perfect place for your professional training.
