About the Program

The Medical Imaging Program prepares radiographers to work in medical facilities producing radiographic examinations which are interpreted by a radiologist or another medical specialist. Graduates of the program are qualified to take the national certification examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Graduates also meet the additional criteria required for state licensure. The program, which is offered only during the day, can be completed in two years with full-time study.

In addition to the Associate in Applied Science in medical imaging, the program also offers two certificate options: Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
