Radiography

This is an exciting and challenging career involving the use of highly sophisticated equipment to create X-rays – anatomical images that are used by physicians to diagnose disease.

Radiographers have direct patient contact in clinic and hospital settings and are valuable members of the primary health-care team.

Why become a Radiographer?

  • Radiographers meet new people every day.
  • Radiographers are highly regarded by their patients for their professionalism and support.
  • The technology in medical imaging is changing all the time.  You will use the latest technology and manage machines that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
  • Promotion opportunities and the ability to cross train to areas such as Computed Axial Tomography (CAT scan) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Mammography, and Bone densitometry are excellent.
  • The health care field is one of the largest fields of employment in the United States.
