Earn a Nuclear Medicine Technology Degree
A High-Tech Healthcare Career
Nuclear medicine is coming of age as the forerunner of molecular imaging. Nuclear medicine uses small radioactive “tracers” to create images of internal body structures and metabolic processes. These metabolic imaging techniques such as positron emission tomogrpahy (PET), performed in conjunction with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are producing images that can visualize cellular and molecular function.
A selection committee for the NMT program will review all completed applications in June and October each year.
It should be noted that not all applicants who meet minimum selection criteria will be invited for a personal interview.
Applicants with a strong academic background and currently enrolled in BCHS, or completing pre-program courses at institutions with collaborative or articulation agreements, will be considered first for interviews.
