Radiography

Radiography is the medical profession that uses x-rays to make images of the structures of the body.

DUE TO THE CURRENT PANDEMIC OUTBREAK, THIS PROGRAM MAY NOT BE DELIVERED EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED OR IN THE TIME FRAME INDICATED.

Due to multiple factors including COVID and program revision, the Radiography program is changing to a summer start date, effective June 1, 2021.  The program will continue to be six semesters in length, graduating in May.

The Radiography program is a two-year degree program that prepares students for an occupation in the professional field of medical radiography (x-ray technology). Related imaging modalities include computed tomography, angiography, magnetic resonance imaging, and mammography. Radiography is a specialty within the field of Radiologic Technology, along with diagnostic medical sonography, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy.
