Radiologic Technology

If you've ever had an x-ray, you've probably met a radiologic technologist. Radiographers use x-ray equipment to produce 2-D and 3-D images of the tissue, organs, bones and vessels of the body. Some radiographers specialize in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or mammography.

A career in radiologic technology can lead in many directions. Radiologic technologists are needed in every health care setting. You could work in a large hospital, a suburban outpatient clinic or a rural physician's office. You could specialize in dozens of clinical areas ranging from prenatal care to orthopedics. You could manage an entire radiology department, including its budget and personnel. You could teach, inspiring new generations of radiologic technologists, or you could perform research that leads to breakthroughs in diagnostic imaging.

The Radiologic Technology Program is a chartered member of the Missouri Gamma Sigma Chapter of Lambda Nu.

The program is also seeking accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The JRCERT assures employers and prospective students that our program provides educational excellence and patient and professional safety. It is the faculty’s desire to create the highest quality Radiologic Technology Program available. If a student has concerns with program policies or practices, please bring them to the attention of the Program Director or the Clinical Coordinator. Issues may be easily resolved once we are aware of them.

After JRCERT accreditation is achieved, concerns with the program’s compliance with JRCERT policies are subject to the Grievance and Appellate Process.
