Radiologic technologists work directly with the patient and physician performing sophisticated diagnostic x-ray procedures including taking radiographic exposures, image and film processing, operating many types of technological equipment, and radiation safety. The radiologic technologist also provides professional handling and care of patients. The program requires a series of credit courses directly related to radiologic sciences. The program also requires students have completed major support and general education courses prior to admission (see Getting Started in the Radiologic Technology Program).
CBC offers an eight-quarter Associate in Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology. Upon successful completion of the degree, students are eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination, which if passed successfully, provides the graduate with nationally-recognized credentials. The program consists of in-class instruction via live lectures; on campus labs where students practice positioning and radiographic technique skills; and up to 1,800 hours of hands-on training in local healthcare facilities.
