Program Overview

Radiographers position radiographic equipment at the correct angle and height over the appropriate area of a patient’s body. Using instruments similar to a measuring tape, they may measure the thickness of the section to be radiographed and set controls on the x-ray machine to produce radiographs of the appropriate density, detail, and contrast.

They must follow physicians’ orders precisely and conform to regulations concerning the use of radiation to protect themselves, their patients, and their coworkers from unnecessary exposure. In addition to preparing patients and operating equipment, radiologic technologists keep patient records and adjust and maintain equipment.

Specific Facility, Tools Or Educational Tools Available

The radiography lab includes state-of-the-art equipment that is equal or newer than most clinical sites, allowing students to train on the latest technology.

Formal Articulation Agreements

No formal articulations are availble, but a number of colleges and universities offer graduates of the Paramedicine program the opportunity to receive credit toward a bachelor’s or even master’s degree.
