Welcome to the Radiology Department

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT PROGRAM CURRICULUM & ADMISSIONS PROCESS

As previously announced, due to a recent legislative mandate (SB 497), the Radiography Program Curriculum will be changed beginning in the Fall of 2015.  The proposed revisions to the curriculum can be reviewed here.

Please note that the revised curriculum is still in the process of being reviewed by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board and there is a possibility that one additional course on "Student Success in College" may be added to the curriculum before final approval is granted.  Because the number of Semester Credit Hours will be reduced in the revised degree plan, there will be changes made to the admissions process.  We recommend that you check this site frequently for changes in the admissions process.

The Diagnostic Medical Imaging Radiology Program prepares qualified individuals for a career as a radiologic technologist, R.T(R). Radiographers safely administer low levels of ionizing radiation to obtain diagnostic images. Individuals must be detail-oriented, precise and analytical, and understand spatial relationships. Extensive knowledge of patient care, anatomy & physiology, image production, radiation protection and procedures is required. Graduates are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification exam. Employment opportunities include hospitals, imaging centers, physician offices and clinics. After certification, a radiographer may pursue other career opportunities in advanced imaging modalities offered at ACC.
