Proctored Exams

The Imaging Sciences Program requires course exams to be proctored and encourages the proctoring to be conducted at Rush University. For those students who are unable to come to Rush University, an external official proctoring site may be approved by the program director. Any upfront external proctoring charges are the responsibility of the student and will be reimbursed at the end of the semester term. External proctoring charges are dependent on the facility that is chosen and charges can range from $15-$25 per exam seating.

Medical Imaging Technologists’ Career Options

Medical imaging is one of the fastest growing professions in the country. According to the US Bureau of Labor & Statistics, employment of radiologic and MRI technologists is projected to grow 13% from 2016 to 2026.

The need for advanced medical imaging technologists is expected to increase significantly due to:

  • Increases in the population and aging of the population.
  • Changes in treatment and technology.
  • Prevalence of disease states or conditions requiring advanced diagnostic and interventional radiography.
  • Advisory focuses on Medicare program policies. Policies may apply to selected private payers in addressing coding, coverage, and payment for diagnostic CT & MRI and Interventional procedures.
  • According to American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), salaries will also increase for those who possess an advanced educational degree, along with the knowledge and skills for advanced practice.

A bachelor’s degree in imaging sciences serves as a value for all career paths and upward mobility potential that would otherwise limit a technologist with an associate’s degree.
