Radiologic Technologists are skilled in creating images of the human body with the use of ionizing radiation. The radiologic technologist student is trained in diagnostic x-ray procedures and fluoroscopy, digital radiography, surgery, trauma and pediatrics, with plenty of hands-on practical experience. They are also educated in patient care, x-ray equipment physics, and are responsible for radiation safety. Upon completion of this program, students will:
- Perform as a vital member of the medical team by providing high quality, diagnostic images;
- Excel in providing patient care, and demonstrate knowledge about current radiation standards;
- Possess the potential to continue education in computed tomography, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, MRI, interventional radiography, or radiation therapy; and
- Be qualified to work as a radiologic technologist upon passing the state registry exam and applying for state licensure.
