Radiologic (X-Ray) Technology - A.A.S. Degree (Career)

A career with a great image.

Radiologic Technologists (RT) perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They are a vital member of the medical team since the radiologist interpreting the images depends on the skills and expertise of the RT performing the initial exam to make a correct diagnosis. RTs are educated in anatomy, radiographic procedures, patient positioning, equipment operations, radiation safety, and patient care. With the variety of imaging technology today, RTs often specialize in a specific post-primary certification, including: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT), Mammography, Quality Management (QM), Bone Densitometry, Cardiac-Interventional (CI) Radiography, Vascular-Interventional (VI) Radiography, Vascular Sonography, or Breast Sonography. A career in Radiologic Technology provides competitive salaries, job security, and geographical flexibility.

Graduates of HCC's associate career degree Radiologic (X-Ray) Technology program are eligible to apply for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination. (NOTE: Beginning on January 1, 2015, all candidates for primary pathway certification must have earned an academic degree before becoming certified.)
