About this course
Medical Radiography is a two‐year or three‐year program that integrates scientific concepts into working skills though classroom study and intensive clinical experience. The program concentrates on diagnostic radiology, including angiography and computerized tomography. Other imaging modalities such as nuclear medicine, radiation therapy,sonography, and magnetic resonance imaging are briefly discussed.
Medical radiographers are health professionals who combine technical knowledge with radiographic and anatomical knowledge to obtain diagnostic images of all parts of the human body.
Successful radiographers must have a good working knowledge of human anatomy, radiographic positioning, radiologic physics, equipment operation, and quality assurance. As members of a health care team, radiographers must also understand and apply principles of good patient care, and conduct themselves in accordance with medical ethical standards.
