Radiological science
involves technologists use
X-rays to see the inside of
the human body. Health
care today utilizes an
array of imaging
technologies such as
ultrasound, computed
tomography (CT), nuclear
medicine, positron
emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to
diagnose or treat injuries and/or diseases, which students will have the
opportunity to observe.
Emergency Radiology
Gastrointestinal Radiology
Genitourinary Radiology
Head and Neck Radiology
Radiological science majors at Pitt-Bradford take courses in Psychology,
Sociology, Human Anatomy & Physiology, Modern Physics, Technical
Writing and Bio-Ethics. Students receive hands-on training by taking two
years of courses (junior and senior year) at the School of Radiology at the
Bradford Regional Medical Center.
