What You'll Learn

Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technology is a patient-oriented program that combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology, and medicine using radioactivity to construct images of organs and study physiological processes for diagnostic, therapeutic and research purposes. Nuclear Medicine Technologists play an integral role in the health-care team, working with patients, physicists, nuclear pharmacists, computer specialists, nurses, secretaries and other health-care professionals and are employed in hospitals, universities, medical clinics and research centers across the United States and abroad.

Graduate success rates include:  
100% Pass Rate on the national ARRT Registry examination for the past 21 years. 
6% Have completed, or are pursuing, graduate degrees, PA school or medical school. 
22% of graduates have become leaders in their departments or at some level of leadership above their department.

The Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technology Program:

  • Prepares students to perform as compassionate and caring health care professionals.
  • Prepares our graduates to sit for the ARRT registry examination.
  • Teaches students to think critically, communicate effectively, and demonstrate professional ethics.
  • Challenges students to utilize diagnostic techniques, sound judgment and good decision making to provide patient services.
  • Makes students aware of radiation safety protocols and procedures to reduce exposure to themselves and patients.


Nuclear medicine and molecular imaging technologies, including PET/CT and SPECT/CT, are expected to be used increasingly and to contribute further to employment growth. The wider use of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging to observe metabolic and biochemical changes during neurology, cardiology, and oncology procedures also will spur demand for nuclear medicine technologists.


Nuclear Medicine Technologists are employed in hospitals, universities, medical clinics and research centers across the United States and abroad. There are more than 20,700 Nuclear Medicine Technology positions throughout the country. After further study, graduates may advance to positions such as chief technologist, research technologist, health physicist, radiation safety officer or an educator.

Student, Class of 2025
“My greatest learning experience at Oregon Tech is likely the opportunity and privilege of being able to shadow nuc med techs at Sky Lakes in their Nuclear medicine department. It has been extremely helpful to witness the field I am studying in action and be able to see all of my knowledge learned in the classroom applied live and in action.”
