X-ray technologists use radiation to make images of internal organs of the body, which aid radiologists in diagnosing a patient’s illness or injury. Under the supervision of the radiologist, the technologist positions patients and exposes the affected area of the body to prescribed doses of radiation. Technologists will need to apply computer skills and prepare records of services performed. The technologist will also be skilled in digital radiography which is the new technology that is utilized in the radiography field today.
Attributes/skills needed include: compassionate and emotionally mature, good eye/hand coordination, mechanical aptitude, interest in math and physical science, ability to work with all types of people and be part of a team, ability to calm nervous patients, ability to stand/walk for long periods of time, work with precise limits or standards, make decisions using personal judgment, ability to work independently, ability to picture forms in space, understand the meanings of words and present information clearly, ability to work under pressure and handle emergencies.
The Radiologic Technology Program at Scott Community College is a two-year, full-time program admitting a limited number of students in the fall of every year. Students in the pre-RT category may attend part time, but due to the nature of the program content, once accepted into the RT program, the RT curriculum requires full-time participation. Classroom instruction is coupled with supervised clinical experiences at local hospitals and clinics. Students in the program can expect to spend approximately 30 hours per week in class or clinic and another 10-20 hours studying.
This program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, and graduates are eligible to write the national examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
The Radiation Technology program prepares students to maintain and use the equipment and supplies necessary to demonstrate portions of the human body utilizing x-ray images for diagnostic purposes. X-ray technologists use radiation to make images of the body to aid radiologists in diagnosing a patient’s illness or injury.
