Radiography prepares individuals for a career in diagnostic radiology (x-ray) as a radiographer. The radiographer is a technologist who produces images of the human body to aid physicians in the diagnosis of injuries and diseases. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the entry-level certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiography Technologists (ARRT) and may obtain employment in x-ray departments associated with hospitals, medical clinics and private offices. Program curriculum focuses on theoretical and applied radiography and includes clinical experience in a radiology department. The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Students learn to use x-ray imaging machines to demonstrate body parts on x-ray images for diagnostic purposes, including diagnostic radiology, bedside and trauma procedures, pediatric radiography and special procedures.
