Radiologic technology is a sort of diagnostic modality ideal to use in medical imaging procedures. A radiologic technologist, also called a radiographer or x-ray technician, efficiently performs diagnostic imaging tests, like x-rays, on patients.
Our Diploma in Radiologic Technologist program trains individuals to provide patients with medical imaging services. Our training radiologic technology diploma includes a series of instructions about applied anatomy and physiology, patient positioning, and overall radiologic techniques. In addition to handling radioactive and infectious materials, radiologic technologists are responsible and dedicated to ensuring safety precautions adhere to legal regulations.
