    • Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance - Bachelor of Science in Imaging Sciences

      The Computed Tomography/Magnetic Resonance Program at Morehead State University is an Area of Concentration in the Imaging Sciences baccalaureate degree program.  During the program, students are provided with the knowledge and skills necessary to perform procedures using specialized computer equipment, ionizing radiation, and magnetic resonance to produce sectional anatomy images of various parts of the body.  Along with lecture courses, the program provides hands-on training opportunities in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and clinical education centers associated with the program.  The program prepares graduates who seek employment in hospitals and imaging centers as CT Technologists and/or MR Technologists.  

      The program has a selective admission process and limited enrollment.  Students are admitted once a year (April), with classes beginning in the second summer session of each year.  The qualified applicant must be a radiographer (registry-eligible or registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) and have completed all prerequisites prior to entry (see ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS for additional information.)  Following official acceptance, the program consists of 13 months (full-time) of lecture courses, laboratory courses, and clinical practice.

    • Diagnostic Medical Sonography - Bachelor of Science in Imaging Sciences

      The Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program at Morehead State University is an Area of Concentration in the Imaging Sciences baccalaureate degree program. Sonography is the use of sound waves to generate an image for the assessment and diagnosis of various medical conditions. Sonography is commonly associated with obstetrics and the use of ultrasound imaging during pregnancy, but this technology has many other applications in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions throughout the body. Along with lecture courses, the program provides "hands-on" opportunities in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and during clinical assignments at health care agencies associated with the program.  Graduates may be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers' (ARDMS) national certifying examinations in the areas of sonographic physics and instrumentation, abdomen and obstetrics/gynecology.  The program prepares graduates who seek employment in hospitals, imaging centers, and physicians' offices as Diagnostic Medical Sonographers.

      The program has a selective admission process and limited enrollment.  Students are admitted once a year (April), with classes beginning in the second summer session of each year.  The qualified applicant must be a radiographer (registry-eligible or registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) and have completed all prerequisites prior to entry (see ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS for additional information.) 

      Following official acceptance, the program consists of 13 months (full-time) of didactic coursework and clinical practice averaging 30 - 36 hours per week.  The student will begin courses during Summer II. All classes and labs are scheduled Monday through Thursday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, including a lunch break. During the first eight weeks of the spring and fall semesters, the student will attend classes and labs Monday through Thursday and will attend clinicals on Fridays. During the second eight weeks of each fall and spring semester, the student will be assigned to a clinical affiliate on Monday through Friday for 40 hours per week. A third and fourth clinical is required during the summer near the end of the curriculum with the student attending Monday through Friday for 40 hours per week. The total number of class and lab hours in the sonography program is 456, while 1,016 are required for clinical. This may vary slightly each year due to the University's academic calendar.

    • Leadership in Medical Imaging - Bachelor of Science in Imaging Sciences

      The Leadership in Medical Imaging Program at Morehead State University is an Area of Concentration in the Imaging Sciences baccalaureate degree program.  The program is offered online and is available to registered practitioners in therapeutic and imaging sciences. This program allows the student to complete the required courses part-time and is planned for the working practitioner who wants to pursue a leadership role in imaging sciences.  Following admission, the student should contact the assigned advisor and file an official check sheet.

    • Radiologic Science - Associate Degree Program

      The Radiologic Science Program at Morehead State University is an associate degree program in Radiologic Sciences.  Radiologic Science is the science dealing with x-rays and other forms of radiant energy as used in medicine for radiographing (x-raying) bones, organs, etc. and for diagnosing and treating disease. Along with lecture courses, the program provides "hands-on" opportunities in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and clinical education centers.  Graduates are eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists national certification examination in radiography.  After certification, graduates are eligible to seek employment in hospitals, imaging centers and physicians offices as radiographers. Graduates may choose to pursue advanced imaging education in areas such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, and diagnostic medical sonography.  As part of the Bachelor of Science in Imaging Sciences Degree, the Department of Imaging Sciences offers an advanced imaging program in diagnostic medical sonography and a program that combines computed tomography and magnetic resonance.

      The Radiologic Sciences program has a selective admission process and limited enrollment.  Students apply in the spring for fall admission (see ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS for additional information).  Following official acceptance, the program consists of two years of didactic coursework, laboratory, and two separate clinical assignments.
