The Computed Tomography program at Grady Health System is an advanced level full-time seven month program. This specialized program prepares the graduate for a rewarding career as a CT Technologist. The school awards a certificate in Computed Tomography upon completion. This advanced- level program is for registered radiologic technologists.

A CT Technologist typically is employed in hospital settings.
Classes are limited in size. Admission to this program is competitive. The number of students accepted is dependent on the number of clinical sites and job outlook.
