Radiography prepares individuals for a career in diagnostic
radiology (X-Ray) as a radiographer. The radiographer is
a technologist who produces images of the human body to aid
physicians in the diagnosis of injuries and diseases.
Graduates of the program are eligible to take the
entry-level certification examination administered by the
American Registry of Radiography Technologists (ARRT)
and may obtain employment in the x-ray departments
associated with hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary
clinics, and private offices.
Program curriculum focuses on theoretical and applied
radiography and includes a clinical experience in a
radiographic department. The program is accredited by the
Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology
(JRCERT). Students learn to use x-ray imaging machines to
demonstrate body parts on x-ray films for diagnostic
purposes, including diagnostic radiology, bedside and trama
procedures, pediatric radiography, and special procedures.
