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).
BCC's Radiologic Technology program consists of two years of combined academic and clinical education, the equivalent of 21 calendar months. As of January 2016 and forward, the program will no longer have intersession clinical (Winter Term) or a post-graduation review session. Clinical education is provided in cooperating hospitals; Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, UHS,Wilson and UHS, Binghamton General Hospitals and clinics. We also have affiliations in Norwich, NY Oneonta, 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. 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, the graduate is eligible to sit for the examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists 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 thoserequiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study.
