Medical Imaging

Welcome to the Emory University Medical Imaging Program. Medical imaging professionals utilize x-rays and other energy forms to help diagnose and treat medical conditions. The medical imaging professional (radiologic technologist or radiographer) provides quality patient care while creating diagnostic images independently, assisting radiologists and other physicians in imaging the body, and operating specialized radiographic equipment.

This program is ideal for people interested in both personal interaction and a "high-tech" career. Medical imaging professionals apply their knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathology, patient positioning, radiation protection, and image production techniques in the performance of their duties. Students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for professional competence through a blend of classroom and clinical education.

Emory University’s Medical Imaging Program offers a baccalaureate degree, and graduates advance more rapidly within the profession. Advanced coursework in radiology administration, radiography education, and advanced clinical practice in computed tomography, interventional radiology, magnetic resonance imaging, or women’s health (mammography and bone densitometry) is offered.

Please note that advanced coursework in interventional radiology and women's health (mammography and bone densitometry will be discontinued in 2021. Students admitted to the BMSc program after 2018 will no longer be offered advanced coursework in these two areas. Students admitted to the RT-BMSc program will no longer be offered coursework in these two areas after 2019, if enrolling part-time, and after 2020, if enrolling full-time.

NOTE: Although Emory Decatur Hospital is now a part of Emory Healthcare, Emory Decatur Hospital School of Radiology and Emory University Medical Imaging Program are separate entities.
