Radiography Programs

The radiographer produces medical images for diagnosis of disease. Duties include: positioning of patient to obtain proper projection, aligning source (usually x-radiation), making exposure factor selections, processing the image, storing and retrieving images. Graduates are eligible to take the entry-level certification examination and are employable in radiology and medical-imaging departments in hospitals and clinics. Radiographers should be able to follow instructions carefully and work to prescribed standards, able to use good judgment in following procedures and handling problems, interested in work of a technical or scientific nature, and willing and able to work under pressure in emergency situations.

Shared programs give students access to career majors that might not otherwise be available at their local college. Where these career fields are in high demand, two or more colleges may agree to share program components at the individual colleges. Because the colleges are collaborating, students may need to attend certain classes at another college to fulfill the program requirements. For more information please contact one of the colleges listed.
