Radiographers use x-ray equipment and specialized computer equipment to produce images of the human body. The images produced by the radiographer are used in the diagnosis and treatment of patient disease. Some radiographers specialize in specific modalities within the field of medical imaging such as mammography, computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). They work closely with radiologists, the physicians who interpret medical images, as well as other healthcare professionals.

The Radiography Program requires a minimum 2.50 GPA for admission, and students must satisfactorily complete prerequisite courses with a “C” or higher, prior to petitioning.
