Radiologic Science Program Information

Radiologic Science prepares the future radiologic technologist with a wide range of skills in general radiography along with mobile and surgical radiography, and fluoroscopy.

The program also provides an opportunity for students to receive didactic certifications in advanced imaging modalities such as Computed Radiography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Mammography (M), and Interventional Radiography (IR).

Obtaining an Oregon Tech Radiologic Science degree will give you extensive training in communication skills and business practices to be eligible to take the radiography examination, administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Those who gain registration may pursue post primary certifications in areas such as Interventional Radiography, Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and Mammography.

The final year within Radiologic Science involves an 11-month, full-time externship at one of our affiliate healthcare facilities under the supervision of a clinical instructor. Upon successful completion of the externship year, imaging students will be eligible to sit for the professional registry exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
