Radiologic Technology

A.A.S. Degree (O,W)

Radiologic Technology is the art and science of using x-rays to produce images of the organs, bones, tissues and vessels of the human body. Students in this technology are educated in utilizing x-ray equipment and techniques, proper patient positioning, radiation protection methodologies, and quality patient care. As a member of the medical imaging team, the radiologic technologist produces quality, diagnostic images that are interpreted by radiologists -- physicians who specialize in medical imaging. The programs are accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (www.jrcert.org). Graduation from an accredited program in Radiologic Technology ensures eligibility to sit for the certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). In conjunction with related and technology didactic courses, students apply their knowledge during integrated clinical experiences in area radiology departments. Academically ready students can apply to the program following the guidelines of the Allied Health competitive admission process. Interested applicants should review the information provided here and contact their program advisor for application requirements.
