Diagnostic Imaging Program (Three years)

The Diagnostic Imaging program provides an experience based on academic and interactive exposure with radiologists in various clinical settings. The program develops chiropractic radiologists who have acquired advanced skills and competencies in diagnosis of pathologies; contraindications to spinal manipulative therapy; and expertise in the diagnosis of pathomechanics of the locomotor system via static and dynamic radiographs.


The program utilizes a syllabus put forth by the American College of Chiropractic Radiology (ACCR) to guide the academic portion of the program. The academic portion is broadly divided into Principles of diagnostic imaging and radiation health, Musculoskeletal imaging, Chest imaging, Abdominal imaging, and Neuro-imaging.
