What is Radiography?

The WKCTC Radiography Program prepares the individual to become a radiographer. The radiographer is prepared to administer ionizing radiation (x-rays) for medical diagnostic imaging purposes. Emphasis is on radiation protection and quality patient care. The curriculum is comprised of specialized courses in radiography with concentrated study in the basic sciences, mathematics and general education. Students enrolled in the Radiography program must achieve a minimum grade of "C" in each Radiography course. Upon completion of the program, the graduate is eligible to apply for the examination for registration as a radiographer by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.  Students must pass the national certification exam to become registered. State licensure is required in some states.  The Commonwealth of Kentucky requires radiographers to be state licensed through the Kentucky Board of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy.
