Medical radiographers or radiologic technologists are allied health professionals who use their patient care and technical skills to perform diagnostic procedures using ionizing radiation. Procedures include exams of the central nervous, gastrointestinal, skeletal, respiratory, and urinary systems and may be performed in the radiology department, emergency room or the surgical suite.
Professional competence requires a radiographer to apply their knowledge in anatomy, pathology, patient positioning, radiation protection, image production and evaluation. Employment opportunities include hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, outpatient imaging centers, government agencies and industry. In addition, registered radiographers may pursue additional education in advanced modalities such as sonography, nuclear medicine, interventional radiography, radiologist assistant, radiation therapy, CT, MRI and mammography.
Applicants will be admitted into the program without discrimination as to age, sex, creed, ethnic origin or marital status and must be able to demonstrate physical abilities sufficient to pass each course.
