We offer the Bachelor of Technology in Medical Imaging program by distance education to registered medical imaging technologists from across Canada and other parts of the world, who have completed two years of relevant work experience. This program addresses the pressing need for advanced education resulting from the significant technical and clinical advances that have occurred in medical imaging in recent years.
The BCIT Bachelor of Technology in Medical Imaging degree program currently offers specialization in radiography, which involves the use of X-rays to produce radiographs (X-ray films) for diagnostic purposes. We are also considering specialization in nuclear medicine, which makes use of measured doses of radioactive material to obtain information about a patient's condition, and in sonography, in which high-frequency sound waves are used to produce images for diagnostic purposes. The description below presents information related to the radiography specialization only.
