What is a Radiographer?

Radiographers (or Radiologic Technologists) use radiation to produce images of the human body for the purpose of medical diagnosis. In addition to completing coursework and clinical rotations focused in Radiography, students in the Medical Imaging Radiography Track at IUFW have the opportunity to explore and study several post primary imaging modalities and career pathways such as CT, MRI and Mammography.

Upon program completion, students will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging. Graduates are eligible to apply to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Examination in Radiography. Each graduate must pass the national exam and become certified as a Radiologic Technologist in Radiography before applying for certification examination in another modality.
