If you like technology, are good with people, and want to work in the medical field, a career as a radiology technologist could be a good choice for you.
In this accredited program, you’ll learn to use sophisticated imaging tools—such as X-ray, ultrasound, CT and MRI—to capture images that help doctors treat and diagnose diseases and injuries. Courses explore anatomy, physiology, positioning and radiographic techniques. You’ll also receive hands-on clinical training in local medical imaging departments.
Upon completion of the program, you will qualify to take the national registry examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). As a registered radiology technologist, you could work in a hospital, clinic, medical office or mobile unit—providing care for patients of all ages and with a variety of medical conditions.
