Radiologic Technology involves the use of modern equipment to produce optimal images for a radiologist to interpret for the diagnosis and treatment of disease. A radiologic technologist operates x-ray equipment, provides patient care and radiation protection, positions the patient, selects technical factors for radiographic quality, produces and processes radiographs, maintains quality control, and maintains records.
A radiologic technologist may continue their education in areas such as Sonography, Interventional Cardiology, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Mammography, Departmental Administration, Quality Assurance Management, Research, Education, Radiation Therapy, Bone Densitometry, Nuclear Medicine, and Positron Emission Tomography (PET).
SUNY Broome's Radiologic Technology program consists of two years of combined academic and clinical education, the equivalent of 21 calendar months. Clinical education is provided in cooperating hospitals; Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, UHS; Wilson and Binghamton General Hospitals, orthopedic clinics, and clinics. We also have affiliations in Norwich, NY Oneonta, NY, Sidney, NY, Cortland, NY, and Ithaca, NY. Clinical Education is a necessary component of the program. Clinical Education may be some distance from their home, and students are responsible for their own housing and transportation. All clinical affiliations are within a 1 hour drive from campus. It may not be possible for students to pursue this program on a part-time basis.
Upon completion of the academic and clinical competencies required for the program, you must have earned an associate's degree or higher, meet ARRT's Ethics requirement, then pass an exam before earning ARRT credentials for certification and New York State licensure.
Sequence of Courses
This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study. (Note: Courses are sequential and have prerequisites.)
