Radiography

The Associate Degree Radiography-curriculum prepares the student to be a radiographer, a skilled healthcare professional who uses radiation to produce images of the human body.  Students are educated in radiation protection, radiographic procedures, patient care, anatomy and physiology, image production and evaluation, and radiography equipment and operation. 

In addition to course work in radiography principles, theories, and practice, students will study ethics and law in radiologic sciences, pharmacology, radiation biology, and radiographic pathology.  Related skills are developed through clinical competency applications, critical thinking skills, communication methods, and professional behavior modeling. 

The curriculum prepares the student to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists primary certification examination.  Successful completion of the examination grants the radiographer the distinction as R.T. (R); Registered Technologist in Radiography. 

Graduates should qualify for entry-level radiography positions in many types of organizations including hospitals, clinics, diagnostic imaging centers, physicians' offices, medical laboratories, and government agencies.
