3-YEAR B.Sc. Medical Imaging Technology
in collaboration with FORTIS HEALTHCARE
Medical imaging is the technique and process used to create images of the human body (or parts and function thereof) for clinical purposes (medical procedures seeking to reveal, diagnose or examine disease) or medical science (including the study of normal anatomy and physiology).
Medical Radiological Technologist:
A Radiologic Technologist, also known as medical radiation technologist and as radiographer, performs imaging of the human body for diagnosis or treating medical problems.
Radiologic technology modalities (or specialties) include
- Diagnostic radiography deals with examination of internal organs, bones, cavities and foreign objects; includes cardiovascular imaging and interventional radiography.
- Sonography uses high frequency sound and is used in: obstetrics (including fetal monitoring throughout pregnancy), necology, abdominal, pediatrics, cardiac, vascular and musculo-skeletal region imaging.
- Fluoroscopy live motion radiography (constant radiation) usually used to visualize the digestive system; monitor the administration of contrast agents to highlight vessels and organs or to help position devices within the body.
- CT (Computed Tomography) which provides cross-sectional views (slices) of the body; can also reconstruct additional images from those taken to provide more information in either 2 or 3D.
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) builds a 2-D or 3-D map of different tissue types within the body.
- Nuclear Medicine uses radioactive tracers which can be administered to examine how the body and organs function, for example the kidneys or heart.
- Radiotherapy uses radiation to shrink, and sometimes eradicate, cancerous cells/growths in and on the body.
- Mammography use low dose x-ray systems to produce images of the human mammary glands.
Chitkara University students complete their third year internship at Fortis Hospital. The completion of internship is mandatory to enable a student to obtain the degree of Bachelor of Medical Imaging Technology.
