Online Radiologic Science Degrees and Careers


Radiologic science work is performed by radiologic technologists and technicians. Radiologic technologists and technicians use medical examining equipment pursuant to orders issued by physicians for diagnostic purposes. These medical professionals perform examinations using magnetic resonance imaging, computed tomography, and mammography to facilitate diagnosing medical problems and detect disease.

Education & Career Opportunities in Radiologic Science

Each state's health board is responsible for licensing radiologists. The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists provides voluntary certification for technologists.
