b'Radiologic Technology (Radiography) (Jackson County Campus) Summer Entry Radiographers perform imaging examinations and accompanying responsibilities at the request of physicians and/or qualified practitioners qualified to prescribe and/or perform radiologic procedures. They utilize equipment emitting ionizing radiation to produce radiographic images of the internal structures of human anatomy. These radiographic images are utilized by the physician for diagnostic purposes. The radiographer is responsible for all functions in the Radiology Department to ensure consistent radiographic images and provide for personal and patient safety from ionizing radiation. In addition to producing diagnostic images and primary patient care, other responsibilities may include administrative and educational functions. Graduates of this program will be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology and are eligible to make application to the American Registry of Radiologic Technology in order to become a Registered Radiographer. The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182. The telephone number is 312-704-5300 - mail@jrcert.org.Accreditation standards are located at http://www.jrcert.org.
