Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology

Radiologic technologists, also called radiographers, produce X-ray images of all parts of the human body for diagnosis of medical problems. They are responsible for ensuring that the radiographs are of the highest quality by operating the equipment and positioning the patient carefully and accurately. Radiologic technologists often specialize in specific techniques, such as mammography, CT or MRI scanning. These specialties are sometimes learned on the job or may require additional education.

In this program, you’ll learn the skills necessary to be employed in a diagnostic radiology center and be prepared for continuing specialized education in other areas of diagnostic imaging. Upon graduation, you’ll be eligible to take the national registry examination administered by American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Successful completion of the ARRT exam is required to be certified as a radiologic technologist practicing in radiography.  Licensure to practice in the state of Ohio is approved by the Ohio Department of Health X-ray Control Program.


Career Opportunities

As a radiologic technologist, you may work in a hospital, clinic, physician’s office or urgent care center. You’ll work with patients of all ages and other members of the medical team.

The field of radiology is expanding and is being driven by state-of-the-art technologies. New imaging equipment and techniques keep the field interesting and diversified.
