Master of Science in Imaging Sciences

The MS in Imaging Sciences program prepares graduates to earn marketable, multi-modality certifications in advanced medical imaging while earning a master’s degree and acquiring leadership skills. The goal of the program is to develop clinical competence with registry-eligible certifications in radiography, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. 

After successful program completion, graduates are eligible for state licensure by the Department of State Health Services to the Texas Medical Board and for the Magnetic Resonance Safety Officer credentialing examination offered by the American Board of Magnetic Resonance Safety.

I really love this field, because it’s driven by both patient care and medical imaging innovation. Imaging technologists are responsible for handling complex technological applications and providing excellent patient care. Serving patients of all ages and backgrounds requires empathy, communication skills and attention to detail. The most successful medical imaging professionals possess these traits in order to keep their patients comfortable and safe. Our patients, veterans and communities deserve excellence in their patient care experience.
