The Radiologic Technology major trains students to be licensed X-Ray technologists. Licensed techs take images of the human body to help the doctor with a diagnosis. The Radiologic Technology (Rad. Tech.) program is coordinated by the Health Sciences Department and leads to an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree. Upon graduation from the program, students are eligible to sit for the national licensed exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Additional information about the association can be found online at www.arrt.org. The standards of practice for a Radiologic Technologist are also established by the New York State Division of Professional Licensing, Department of Health (DOH) and the Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection of New York State.

What makes this major unique?
Radiology Technology combines the arts and sciences while immersed in technology. A satisfaction of producing images of the human body using digital technology and helping produce a tool that can help in the diagnosis of injuries and or diseases. Each day is different as technologists deal with a patient for a short amount of time with different circumstances.
Licensed Radiologic Technologists can immediately enter the workforce. Stepping stone to advancement in other imaging modalities such as Mammography, CT, MRI, Interventional Radiography, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, and Radiation Therapy.
