School Selection Criteria

An aspiring radiologic technician should consider the following when looking for radiologic schools:

  • Individuals may want to ensure that the program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
  • Graduating from an accredited program can increase an individual's ability to pass the Radiologic Technologist Radiography (RTR) certification exam.
  • Clinics provide hands-on experience and the opportunity to network with other technicians and potential employers.

X-Ray Technology Associate's Degree

These 2-year programs consist of approximately 70-credit hours of general education and field-specific coursework. Degrees awarded include an Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology and an Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology. Students investigate relevant topics through classroom training and are typically also required to complete several clinics to gain hands-on experience with equipment.

X-ray technology programs are typically available at the associate's degree level. These programs emphasize topics such as medical terminology, patient positioning, physiology, radiography and human development.
