Radiographic Imaging Overview

The six semester Radiographic Imaging program has been nationally accredited for over 40 years by the Joint Review Committee in Education in Radiologic Technology. Students in the program experience a standard of excellence as they develop their skills and knowledge to safely use x-ray radiation to produce images for diagnosis. Coursework focuses on patient care, radiographic procedures, the science and technology behind the imaging process, and radiobiology. A clinical education 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 learning.

Graduates find employment as radiographers in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices and mobile units, as well as numerous specialty fields including computed tomography (CT), mammography, and interventional radiology. In addition, radiography is considered the foundation for careers in diagnostic medical sonography, imaging education, and healthcare administration.
