Radiologic technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care.
After graduation, radiologic technologists may specialize in bone densitometry, cardiovascular-interventional radiography, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, or quality management, or stay with general radiography (information provided by ARRT).
Radiography certification is required to work as a radiologic technologist. Successful completion of the St. Cloud State program will prepare you to pass the certification board exam in radiography which is administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
