Objectifs du programme

The goal of the Diagnostic Imaging program is to form diagnostic imaging technologists. Diagnostic imaging technologists are health sector professionals who are employed by public or private health institutions. They work in dedicated medical imaging departments and services, and also in a variety of other environments, including at patients’ bedsides and in operating rooms. Their role is to produce the best possible images, based on a medical prescription, using ionizing radiation and other energy forms, and to gather data that radiologists and other medical specialists can use to make a diagnosis or produce a treatment plan. Diagnostic imaging technologists play a role in and contribute to the delivery of services to patients.

Diagnostic imaging technologists can work in different areas of the medical imaging field, for adult or pediatric patients: General radiography, Bone densitometry,Mammography, Radioscopy, Angiography, Computed tomography and Magnetic resonance.

To practise their profession, diagnostic imaging technologists must be members of the Ordre des technologues en imagerie médicale, en radio-oncologie et en électrophysiologie médicale du Québec (OTIMROEPMQ).

Technologue en imagerie médicale (Radiodiagnostic)

Les technologues en imagerie médicale (radiodiagnostic), aussi appelés techniciens en radiographie, effectuent des examens par imagerie médicale (radiographie conventionnelle, fluoroscopie, mammographie, échographie, tomodensitométrie, imagerie par résonance magnétique, etc.) afin de permettre aux radiologistes d’établir leurs diagnostics. Ils préparent et accompagnent les patients pendant les examens et traitent les images diagnostiques. C’est un métier essentiel qui demande des aptitudes pour les sciences, de l’empathie et de l’écoute. Une carrière de technologue en imagerie médicale convient aux personnes qui possèdent une bonne capacité d’analyse et de synthèse et qui aiment travailler avec le public.
