Radiological Technology

Radiologic Technology is the segment of the healthcare team that produces diagnostic medical images for the treatment and care of patients. Radiographic imaging takes place in different venues including hospitals, out-patient clinics, and physician offices. Students will be performing radiography on patients from all age groups and suffering from a broad spectrum of diseases. The program is designed for students to be trained to work in diagnostic radiology, but will be shown other modalities such as Cat Scan, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, and Ultrasound.

The program includes didactic lecture and laboratory classes along with clinical rotations for field experience throughout the 2-year curriculum. The course of study is comprised of 68 semester credit hours and is designed to prepare the graduate for employment as a diagnostic radiologic technolo-
gist. Students will be assigned a preceptor in the practicum courses and will be responsible to complete a specific number of competencies. At the conclusion of the program, the students will be awarded an A.A.S. degree in Radiologic Technology and be eligible to sit for the ARRT national registry exam. Radiologic Technology provides a rewarding career in the healthcare industry. The need for technologists is high all over the nation.
