The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) is the world’s largest credentialing organization that seeks to ensure high-quality patient care in radiologic technology. The ARRT Examination accesses the knowledge and cognitive skills required of the staff technologist at entry into the profession.
Radiography is the art and science of using radiation as a diagnostic tool in performing radiographic examinations. Radiologic Technologists apply the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, radiographic technique and radiation biology in performing medical x-ray examinations using established radiation protection standards in limiting radiation exposure to patients, themselves and others.
Beginning this fall, the College will be offering a bachelor’s degree in Radiologic Sciences. There is a need for sophisticated imaging management and leadership to respond to the clinical, organizational and fiscal demands facing the healthcare industry, which will support the creation of advanced educational and skill development opportunities for imaging.
