4-YEAR B.Sc Medical & Radiology Imaging Technology

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.
