The Radiologic Technology program provides education and training to individuals interested in the field of medical imaging. A Radiologic Technologist, or Radiographer, is a scientific artist who works as part of the health care team. With this art they contribute to the diagnostic treatment of the patient. They assist the Radiologist and are responsible for the accurate demonstration of body structures on a radiograph or other image receptor. The Radiologic Technologist determines the proper exposure factor, manipulates medical imaging equipment, and evaluates the radiographic images for quality assurance. The Radiologic Technologist combines advanced medical technology with human compassion.

Radiologic Technology is one of the allied health professions that can offer a variety of career paths. Employment opportunities may include hospitals, physician offices, imaging centers, as well as traveling opportunities.
