Radiologic Technology

https://dacc.nmsu.edu/radt/

Associate of Applied Science Degree: Radiologic Technology

Certificate of Completion: Computed Tomography

Radiologic Technologists are an important part of the medical team. They produce medical images (radiographs), carry out diagnostic procedures, determine safe radiation exposure limits, and collect technical data necessary to assess client (patient) status. Job prospects in the Las Cruces/El Paso area are occasionally limited, but nationwide there is faster-than-average job growth with many opportunities for persons seeking entry-level positions.

Students in the Radiologic Technology program receive training both in the classroom and in clinical settings, where they work alongside nurses, physicians, and other health-care professionals. In the classroom, students learn about the anatomy and function of the human body, radiographic physics and equipment, and radiographic procedures. Students acquire skills in radiation protection for the patient and for the health professional. Laboratory activities teach the proper positioning of an injured or ill patient. Clinical work offers students training in diagnostic radiology and introduces the student to various other imaging modalities. The clinical work is offered in Las Cruces, T or C, Alamogordo, Artesia, Carlsbad, Deming, Ruidoso, Silver City, and El Paso.

Graduates of the program are eligible to take (and must pass) the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification exam in order to obtain employment in this field. It should be noted that felony or misdemeanor convictions may make a student ineligible to take the ARRT exam. Many states also require a license to practice as a radiographer in that state. Continuing education is required with both the ARRT and state licenses to retain current certification status. Recertification is required every ten (10) years in order to maintain ARRT national certification.

The DACC Radiologic Technology program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.

Past criminal violations may prevent a student from completing the degree and gaining employment in the field.

Certificate Program in Computed Tomography

Computed Tomography (CT) is a branch of radiology that employs specialized radiography equipment to produce sectional images of the human anatomy. The CT technologist performs various diagnostic procedures under the supervision of a licensed radiologist or in most cases, a licensed technologist. In order to produce quality images, the CT technologist must be able to work effectively with patients and health professionals, operate sophisticated computer equipment, and observe radiation protection measures. Job prospects in the Las Cruces/El Paso area are occasionally limited, but nationwide there is faster-than-average job growth with many opportunities for persons seeking entry-level positions.

Graduates of the program are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) National Computed Tomography Certification Exam. It should be noted that felony or misdemeanor convictions may make a student ineligible to take the ARRT exam. Many states also require a license to practice as a radiographer in that state. Continuing education is required with both the ARRT and state licenses to retain current certification status.

Special Admission Requirements

In order for students to be admitted to the CT program they must be certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in Radiologic Technology, Radiation Therapy, or Nuclear Medicine. Nuclear medicine technologists may also be certified by the ARRT or by the Nuclear Medicine Technologist Certification Board (NMTCB). The program is offered online in order to allow students from all over New Mexico and other parts of the country to enroll. Each cohort of students admits up to 25 students per new class offering. The student must have a minimum overall college GPA of a 3.0.

NOTE: Students in the Computed Tomography program are required to complete and pass a security background check, FBI fingerprinting, and drug screening in order to participate in clinical education classes. Past criminal violations may prevent a student from completing the degree and gaining employment in the field.

Required Skills and Abilities

The student will acquire and develop the education and skills necessary to perform as an entry-level computed tomography technologist.

The student will develop learning habits that will demonstrate a commitment to professional and personal growth by participating in professional activities and continuing education.

The student will understand and apply methods for effective problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
