Top 4 Certificates in Radiology 2019

Certificate programs are beneficial for students who want to gain thorough knowledge in a field in just one or two years. Students may use a certificate to supplement a general education or to broaden their understanding of a specialized area of an industry.

What is a certificate in radiology? This program focuses on life sciences such as biology, anatomy, and pathology. It also combines specific instruction on radiologic imagery and patient safety. Coursework may be divided between classroom instruction and clinical practical experience. Candidates will learn procedures and techniques in providing quality care to the general public as they perform medical imagery testing using MRI and radiologic technology.

By pursuing a radiology certificate, students will gain the skills they need to work in a constantly changing field of medical care. They will develop technical abilities and improve their interpersonal and communication skills, which can benefit them both personally and professionally.

Determining the cost of a certificate program can depend on where the degree is earned and from what type of learning institution. Radiology certificates are available at universities, community colleges, trade schools, and online education facilities throughout the world. Contact the admissions office of the prospective school to understand the fees and expenses of a program.

With a certificate in this field, students are able to work as radiology technologists in any number of medical facilities, such as hospitals, clinics, private offices, and urgent treatment centers. Some people may choose to specialize in a certain field of radiology or go on to obtain a higher degree to increase their potential salary range or have greater responsibility. They need to be well-trained in safety protocol in addition to working as part of a team providing health care to patients in need.

Obtaining a certificate can be a convenient option for furthering education with classes available online to allow students flexibility in their schedules.

Magnetic resonance (MR) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a procedure that uses pulses of radio wave energy along with a magnetic field to image a specific body area. Structure and function of the body are then presented as cross-sectional anatomy images. MR has greater soft tissue contrast than CT, thereby creating detailed images.

Technologists employed in magnetic resonance imaging may work in hospitals, imaging centers. According to the Occupational Outlook Handbook, technologists with certification in more than one diagnostic imaging area such as MR will be more marketable.

Admission Prerequisite

Admission to the MR Program follows the ARRT guidelines for post-primary certification. An applicant may be currently enrolled in an applicable imaging education program, such as radiology. However, the applicant must have attained registration status through ARRT in the applicable area prior to the start of the MR Program (mid-August). Another avenue for admission is to hold a current registration in radiography, radiation therapy, sonography or nuclear medicine. Sonography registration may be through either the ARRT or ARDMS. Nuclear medicine registration may be held with either the ARRT or NMTCB.... [-]

What is DMS?

Sonography can be used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system, prostate, heart, and blood vessels. Sonography is increasingly being used in the detection and treatment of heart disease, heart attack, and vascular disease that can lead to stroke.

The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) defines sonography as a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. This type of procedure is often referred to as a sonogram or ultrasound scan.
