Radiologic technologists take images of a patient's body so that doctors can make a proper diagnosis. You'll learn how to prepare, operate and maintain the imaging equipment as well as imagining positions, procedures, techniques and processing. Our nationally accredited program will prepare you to work in a number of medical environments. You will be exposed to a wide range of technology in our state-of-the-art labs, and to diverse patient populations at 18 clinical sites.
The Radiologic Technology program at AACC has a 100% first-time pass rate for the National American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam, as well as a 100% rate of employment for graduates within six months of completing the program.
