Radiologic Technology is a great career choice for someone interested in the healthcare field. This two-year comprehensive program consists of radiologic courses, clinical experience, and general studies. The classroom courses are taught at the NCC campus, and clinical experience is obtained at various approved clinical sites.
Radiologic technologists, also known as radiographers, produce x-ray films of parts of the human body for use in diagnosing medical problems. With the ever-changing technology in the health care arena, radiologic technicians are becoming more involved with computerized tomography scanners (CT), which produce cross sectional views and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which utilizes giant magnets and radio waves rather than radiation to create a diagnostic image, as well as other specialized fields that can draw a new graduate of the Radiologic Technology program. National, state, and local data indicates that there will be a continued need for Radiologic Technologists through the next decade.
