Message from the director: A radiology technician works with a radiologist to diagnose and treat patients using diagnostic imaging examinations like X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans. During clinicals, students can see what it’s like for a radiologic technologist to work with patients. Students are hands on in clinicals and can get a better understanding of what the job entails. That’s where students decide if this is the right path for them or not.
