DIAGNOSTIC RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY

This two-year study program may be taught at a community college, university, or at a hospital. The program can be part of a four-year baccalaureate (BSN) degree with two years of preparatory college courses and two years of professional courses in radiologic technology. Graduates must pass a national examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to become registered.

IMAGING TECHNOLOGY & NUCLEAR MEDICINE

Imaging and nuclear medicine technology can be a one-year diploma program, a two-year associate degree program, or part of a baccalaureate degree program. Imaging technology includes areas such as computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MRI), positron emission technology (PET), and cardiovascular/vascular interventional technology.

RADIATION THERAPY

The length of this course of study depends on the educational level and experience of the applicant. Graduates from an accredited radiology technology or related allied health care program may enroll in a one-year program. A two-year program is offered for high school graduates with good mathematics and science educational backgrounds. The study program also may be included in a BSN degree program.

Certification is awarded through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board.


SONOGRAPHY

Diagnostic Medical Sonography educational programs vary depending on the applicant background. The program can be part of the four-year baccalaureate (BSN) degree program or can be offered as an advanced certificate or associate degree program. The one-year certificate program is reserved for persons with prior radiology training; the two-year associate degree program for individuals with no prior training.

Certification is awarded through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers.
