Radiographic Imaging

Radiographers are certified professionals that produce images through the use of x-rays. These images are an important diagnostic tool that has played an important role in medicine for over a hundred years. The science of radiographic imaging is technology driven with the use of computerized equipment common to every patient exam. Radiographers (X-ray technologists) work closely with other health care professionals in meeting the needs of patients with a compassionate approach.

The Radiographic Imaging Program provides students with the technical skills and knowledge to safely use radiation to produce diagnostic images. Courses in the curriculum focus on patient care, radiographic procedures, the science and technology behind the imaging process, radiobiology, and other general education courses. A diverse clinical education experience in a variety of clinical settings and with a range of patient populations supplements the campus lectures and labs with a strong emphasis on hands-on participation by all students.

A minimum of six semesters is required to successfully complete the Associate in Applied Science degree in Radiographic Imaging. Graduates are eligible to take the certifying examination in radiography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Once ARRT certified, graduates are eligible to apply for a state license that is required to practice in most states. Graduate radiographers have ample career opportunities that may include computed tomography, mammography, vascular interventional procedures, equipment sales, and with additional degree work, imaging education, and healthcare administration.

The Radiographic Imaging program is a partner in the Northwest Ohio Allied Health Consortium.

Acceptance into the Occupational Therapy Assistant, Physical Therapist Assistant and Radiographic Imaging programs require a separate application process. Please contact the Advising Office for the application packet or reference the "Requirements" tab above. The application deadline for these programs maybe extended until all spaces are filled.
