Cameron University’s Radiologic Technology Program’s mission is to prepare a wide-ranging and vibrant student population; access to exemplary educational opportunities, for professional success in the radiologic sciences; by fostering resourceful classroom teaching with realistic learning, developing competitive workforce knowledge, effective leadership, and life-long learning; that will lead to a meaningful contribution in the rapidly changing health care environment.
Radiologic Technologists (Radiographer) work under the supervision of physicians, who are primarily Radiologists, operating radiologic equipment to produce radiographs of the body for diagnostic purposes. Various duties of student will include moving the radiology equipment into the specified positions and with proper training, adjusting equipment control to set exposure techniques and factors based on cognitive and psychomotor skills obtained. Students will also gain limited knowledge and skills in specialty areas such as computed tomography, bone densitometry, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, special procedures, ultrasound, and radiation oncology.
Carl Perkins grant funds have been used for the purchase of instructional materials, equipment, and resources for our Radiologic Technology Program.
