Associates of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology (HEGIS 5207)
A Radiologic Technologist is an allied-health professional who performs diagnostic imaging examinations. "Rad Techs" are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care.
Radiologic technologists who perform imaging examinations are responsible for accurately positioning patients and ensuring that a quality diagnostic image is produced. They work closely with radiologists, the physicians who interpret medical images to either diagnose or rule out disease or injury. For the images to be interpreted correctly by the radiologist, the imaging examination must be performed properly by a well educated Radiologic technologist.
Registered Radiologic technologists' (RT(R)) must complete a least two years of formal education in an accredited hospital-based program or a two-or four-year education program at an academic institution and must pass a national certification examination. To remain registered, they must earn continuing education credits.
