Radiologic Technology Career Insights

What can I do with a degree in Radiologic Technology?

The Radiologic Technology program prepares you for a career in radiologic technology (radiography). As a graduate of the program, you will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification exam in radiography. As a radiologic technologist, you will specialize in radiographic procedures that demonstrate anatomy and pathologies on medical x-ray film, fluoroscopic screens and other electronic imaging devices. These images are, in turn, interpreted by radiologists and other physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury.

Salaries for radiologic technologists typically range from $46,428 to $73,777.

PCC’s Radiologic Technology Bachelor of Applied Science degree completion program is designed for registered radiologic technologists who have completed an associate degree at a regionally accredited institution. The goal of the RT(R) to BAS RT(R) program is to provide each student with additional knowledge and skills and an additional imaging modality (MRI or CT) to better meet the demands of an expanding career field. Students may also choose coursework in leadership in medical imaging or teaching methodologies.

Obtaining a BAS degree may also provide lifelong learners the knowledge base to prepare them academically should they wish to pursue a master’s degree for additional career opportunities.
