The Diagnostic Imaging program is a four semester program of study designed to provide qualified radiologic technologists for diagnostic imaging departments of hospitals and outpatient clinics. Radiologic technologists use ionizing radiation to create images of the patient’s anatomy to assist physicians in diagnosing and treatment. While in the program, students will be educated in anatomy, radiation safety and protection, radiographic exam protocols, and basic patient care.  

Radiologic technologists may also have the opportunity to cross-train into advanced modalities such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, and cardiac intervention.
