Radiography Technology

Radiographers perform imaging examinations and accompanying responsibilities at the request of physicians qualified to prescribe and/or perform radiologic procedures. They utilize equipment emitting ionizing radiation to produce radiographic images of the internal structures of human anatomy.

These radiographic images are utilized by the physician for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. The radiographer is responsible for all functions in the Radiology Department to insure consistent radiographic images an provide for personal and patient safety from ionizing radiation.

In addition to producing diagnostic images and primary patient care, other responsibilities may include administrative and educational functions. Graduates of this two-year program will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology and are eligible to make application to the American Registry of Radiologic Technology in order to become a Registered Radiographer.
