The nuclear medicine technology program prepares students as entry-level technologists in a specialized area of diagnostic imaging utilizing radionuclides. Nuclear medicine technologists perform procedures to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, using highly-specialized imaging equipment. Nuclear medicine technologists work in hospitals, physicians’ offices and in medical/diagnostic laboratories, including diagnostic imaging centers. Graduates will be prepared to take the national certification exam for nuclear medicine technologists. Certificate also available; see Frederick Community College's catalog for information and apply online
