Radiologic Technology

Achieve an Associate Degree in as few as 21 months*


As a Radiologic Technologist (RAD), you’ll perform diagnostic imaging exams, like X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and computed tomography (CT) scans to look for patient issues. The RAD works with physicians in hospitals, healthcare facilities, local medical centers, or imaging centers to evaluate the images and determine if more need to be taken, keeps detailed patient records, prepares patients for procedures, and operates equipment for images.

Serve the health of your community through work you love

At our school, the Radiologic Technology Associate Degree program teaches students the technical skills needed to be successful in their jobs. Skills such as vital sign checks, CPR, medical terminology, the positioning of body and equipment, anatomy and physiology, and more are crucial for a certified Radiologic Technologist. The RAD program is offered at our Aurora, CO campus.
