Radiologic technology is the field of study that uses radiation to provide images of tissues, organs, bones and vessels of the human body in the diagnosis of disease and injury. The Radiologic Technology program at the University of Saint Francis is equipped to meet the challenges of providing you with an education in one of the fastest growing technological professions of the century.
A fully energized laboratory, state-of-the-art learning resources and student-dedicated faculty provide the basis for a unique and positive learning experience. As a radiographer, you will perform diversified radiologic procedures using highly technical equipment and apply principles of radiation protection as you determine exposure factors during the performance of examinations. Working closely with a radiologist, you will be responsible for providing basic patient care while producing radiographic images of optimum quality.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that the radiologic technology profession will grow faster than the average (28 percent increase) through the year 2020.
In the past 20years, 100 percent of USF graduates have successfully passed the national certifying examination given by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) on the first attempt.
