Medical Imaging Technologies at Owens Community College works closely with the Nuclear Medicine Institute (NMI) at The University of Findlay to prepare students to work as technologists in individual areas of study, such as Nuclear Medicine Technology.
A nuclear medicine technologist is a highly trained individual who has a solid background in mathematics and the physical, chemical, and biological sciences. Under the supervision of a physician, the nuclear medicine technologist is responsible for the preparation and quality control of radiopharmaceuticals, the performance of in vivo imaging procedures, instrumentation quality control, and the computer analysis of data used by the physician for diagnosis. The nuclear medicine technologist works closely with other allied health personnel and professionals within the medical community to provide quality patient care.
Offered on both the Toledo-area Campus, and the campus of The University of Findlay, the Nuclear Medicine Technology program offers students a combination of didactic instruction with practical application of knowledge and skills in affiliating hospitals.
While attending the Nuclear Medicine Institute students should expect to be responsible for tuition charged by the University of Findlay. Please check the University of Findlay - NMI web site for updated tuition information. Owens Community College office of financial aid will assist students with their financial aid needs.
Graduates must take and pass a national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and / or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board. Passing of this examination credentials graduates as Nuclear Medicine Technologists.
