The Radiologic Technology program prepares you for a career in radiologic technology (radiography). As a graduate of the program, you are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification examination in radiography. You will specialize in radiographic procedures that demonstrate anatomy and pathologies on medical x-ray film, fluoroscopic screens and other electronic imaging devices. These images are, in turn, interpreted by radiologists and other physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury.
The AAS in Radiologic Technology prepares you to work as a critical member of today’s health care team. We teach you important critical thinking/problem-solving techniques as well as interpersonal and communication skills that allow you to interact effectively with other health care team members, patients and families from a variety of professional, social, emotional, cultural and intellectual backgrounds. We provide you with the skills you need to work with highly complex medical imaging equipment, analyze acquired images for quality, assess patient condition and apply appropriate techniques of patient care and education, and achieve the highest degree of clinical competency. The program focuses on developing your intellectual abilities as well as the judgment you need to demonstrate a professional attitude and demeanor, display the highest moral and ethical standards, and foster the safety of yourself and your patients.
