Radiographers are an important component of the healthcare team. Radiographers collect information that assists in diagnosis and treatment of disease. After completion of the program, students are awarded an Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology and are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) exam. After successfully passing the ARRT exam, graduates become registered technologists and obtain the credentials of R.T. (R).
Students completing one of EACC's radiologic technology degrees will join the exciting field of radiology. Graduates can expect to perform the following job duties:
Review and evaluate developed x-rays and computer-generated information to determine if images are satisfactory for diagnostic purposes.
Operate or oversee operation of radiologic or magnetic imaging equipment to produce images of the body for diagnostic purposes.
Use radiation safety measures and protection devices to comply with government regulations and to ensure safety of patients and staff.
Position imaging equipment and adjust controls to set exposure time and distance, according to specification of examination.
Explain procedures and observe patients to ensure safety and comfort during scan.
