3-YEAR B.Sc Medical Imaging Technology
in collaboration with FORTIS HEALTHCARE

An experiential, comprehensive program that focuses on various aspects of medical imaging technology and integrates classroom courses with a one year mandatory internship at Fortis Hospital.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

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). It is one of the best courses in medical field for students who want to make their career in the national and international healthcare industry. The teaching methodology involves classroom lectures, practical classes, hands-on training and laboratory work. It is necessary for the students to complete the compulsory internship of 1 year to complete the Degree.

COLLABORATION WITH FORTIS HEALTHCARE

Fortis Healthcare Limited is a leading integrated healthcare delivery service provider in India. The healthcare verticals of the company primarily comprise hospitals, diagnostics and day care specialty facilities. Currently, the company operates its healthcare delivery services in India, Dubai, Mauritius and Sri Lanka with 45 healthcare facilities (including projects under development), and 314 diagnostic centres. Our collaboration with Fortis (Mohali) provides the necessary ‘hands-on’ clinical experience; imperative for the students pursuing this hospital-based academic program.

CAMPUS RECRUITMENT

B.Sc in Medical Imaging Technology program is suitable for students seeking to expand their horizons and pursue a career field related to medical research & development or technological research in companies that lead to a breakthrough in diagnostic imaging.

A career in Medical Imaging Technology offers a promising future, job stability and a good salary. The program is specifically designed to prepare the graduates to pursue their career in national and international growing healthcare industry. After successful completion of the program a student will be capable of holding assignments in hospital and healthcare institutions, research laboratories and diagnostic centres. Students with an instinct to learn can do higher studies in specialised field of study and can progress as Scientists and even enjoy faculty positions in academic institutions.

  • Graduates can work as Imaging Technologists in Hospitals with Radio diagnostic facilities both in public and private sectors.
  • Graduates can join as Application Specialists in Medical Imaging equipment companies such as GE Health Care, Philips, Siemens, etc.
  • Graduates can also take up teaching positions in educational institutions, in India and abroad, and pursue further research in the field of Medical Imaging Technology.
PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

The program is suitable for students seeking to expand their horizons and pursue a career in the field related to medical research & development or technological research in companies that lead to a breakthrough in diagnostic imaging. Upon completion of this program, students will not only acquire a broad and detailed knowledge in Medical Imaging which will help them become a Next Gen Radiologic Technologist, but will also have the opportunity to develop important practical skills in organising Radiology department.

Chitkara University students complete their third-year internship at Fortis Hospital. Students will receive excellent and exhaustive training in relevant fields and be able to assist senior Radiologists. Hands-on training on advance imaging machines like digital X-ray 128 Slice CT Scan, 3 Tesla MRI, DEXA, Mammography, etc. is also facilitated. The completion of internship is mandatory to enable a student to obtain this Degree.

A Radiologic Technologist, also known as Medical Radiation Technologist and as Radiographer, performs imaging of the human body for diagnosis or treating medical problems. Nature of the work includes:

  • Diagnostic Radiography which deals with examination of internal organs, bones, cavities and foreign objects; includes cardiovascular imaging and interventional Radiography.
  • Sonography using high frequency sound, used in: Obstetrics (including fetal monitoring throughout pregnancy), Gynecology, 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-D or 3-D.
  • 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 uses low dose X-ray systems to produce images of the human mammary glands.
