Radiologic Technology Program is a full-time, two-year Associate in Science Degree program providing professional training for radiologic technologists. Radiologic technologists work in a professional environment at a hospital, clinic, or private office.
Skills involved include patient care, positioning, operating X-ray equipment, image quality assessment, technical factors, and interacting with the general public, ancillary workers, and physicians. Upon completion of the program, graduates will have obtained the knowledge and skills expected of entry-level radiographers in accordance with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and will be eligible to take the national radiology exam, a prerequisite to seeking employment as a registered entry-level radiographer. Graduates who successfully pass the national exam become licensed in the state of Massachusetts and work in hospitals, clinics, medical offices and other health care settings.
Radiographers utilize their patient care skills and knowledge of state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment to help diagnose orthopedic problems, as well other pathologic conditions. The radiographer is part of a medical team. Graduates will also be eligible for advanced certification in specialty areas, such as mammography, Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). In addition to practice, graduates may choose to continue their education at the university level for advanced allied health education, administration, or research.
Roxbury Community College's program in Radiologic Technology is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
