Overview

Summary

The course of study for a radiologic technologist is a two-year program, leading to an associate of applied science degree. The program is offered at LSC-Montgomery and LSC-CyFair. Each college accepts one class each year into the radiologic technology program. The six-semester program includes two summer semesters, for a total of 63 credit hours.

The curriculum is a balance of general education and technical courses in the classroom and laboratory, as well as supervised clinical experiences at local hospitals and outpatient clinics. This combination provides the student an opportunity for educational development and assurance of competency in radiographic skills.

The program is designed to provide the student with the knowledge and skills to perform radiographic examinations, provide patient care and assist the radiologist during diagnostic procedures. Radiologic technologists are employed in medical centers, community hospitals, extended care facilities, physicians’ offices, specialist clinics, and other health care institutions.
