Want to Deliver Picture-Perfect Care?Rad Students in garb

The Radiography Department completes St. Catharine’s compliment of leading imaging programs in the region.  The department supports a Bachelor of Science degree that can make students one of 300,000+ persons who perform diagnostic medical examinations and administer radiation therapy treatment.  Students can choose to complete the BS in Radiography or further their Associate of Science with the BS in Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI) program.  This choice allows a registered technologist (RT) to become prepared for Computed Tomography (CT) or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).  RT's can also complete a Bachelor of Health Sciences which focuses on management and supervision in health care professions.

Students of our programs learn how to position patients to ensure that a quality diagnostic image is produced.  During their course of study, students study anatomy, biology, radiation safety and physics.  Yet, the field is not just science; it is a mixture of science and art.  Our students work with the most technologically advanced equipment in the medical field, using computers to acquire and manipulate images.  In addition, they learn to communicate with patients to provide them with accurate and compassionate patient care, while working with other members of the healthcare team.
