Nuclear Medicine Technology
Nuclear medicine technology falls under the broad
area of diagnostic imaging, specifically the use of
radionuclides, that aid in diagnosing and treating
disease. The program is the only university-based
Nuclear Medicine Technology program in Michigan
and combines general education and specialized
courses with clinical training. Specialized courses
include advanced instrumentation, advanced
imaging, advanced cardiology, research
methodology and radiopharmacology.
Graduates of this program are well prepared to work
in the field of nuclear medicine and are eligible to
take the national certifying examinations for registry
in nuclear medicine technology. Faster-than-average
job growth will arise from an increase in the number
of persons needing these diagnostic procedures.
The program is fully accredited by the Joint Review
Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear
Medicine Technology.
