PRIMARY PATHWAY: NUCLEAR MEDICINE TECHNOLOGY
WORKING IN NUCLEAR MEDICINE TECHNOLOGY
Nuclear medicine technology is a sophisticated area of health care that helps physicians diagnose and evaluate serious conditions—including cancer and heart disease. As a technologist in this field, you’ll create important diagnostic images. Your responsibilities will include preparing and injecting radiopharmaceutical agents into patients, then using a scanner or camera to capture images. You’ll also provide support to nervous patients by explaining what they should expect.
GET STARTED ON YOUR CREDENTIAL
Just as for your first ARRT credential, you’ll have to fulfill requirements in education, ethics, and examination before you obtain a credential in Nuclear Medicine Technology.
After looking over the requirements, review these important Nuclear Medicine Technology documents:
- Primary Pathway Handbook
- Didactic and Clinical Competency Requirements
- Content Specifications
- Task Inventory
