Radiologic Technology

Preparing students to be competent, entry-level radiographers who contribute to the healthcare team.

Radiographers are individuals who are educated about delivering ionizing radiation. Radiographers are responsible for evaluating radiographs, applying radiation safety standards at all times, and administering contrast agents for better imaging. Radiographers also provide patient education and support, and must possess a high level of interpersonal skills. Radiographers are employed by hospitals, clinics, mobile imaging units, urgent care centers, or diagnostic imaging centers.
