Radiologic Technology


The Roane State Associate of Applied Science Degree Program in Radiologic Technology (A.A.S. in RDT) consists of five semesters of full-time study which includes supervised clinical coursework in a diagnostic radiology department. There are no evening or weekend didactic classes. However, in the second year of the program, students are required to complete four weeks of evening shift clinicals. The program is affiliated with 17 clinical sites. Students may be assigned to various clinical sites during their 22 months of clinical coursework.

The radiographer is a healthcare professional that performs radiographic procedures that provide information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. The radiographer also assumes professional responsibility for minimizing the public's exposure to ionizing radiation, thereby observing the ASRT Code of Ethics.

As the population grows and ages, it will increase the demand for imaging science professionals. At this time the number of applications for acceptance into radiologic technology programs greatly exceeds available space in these programs and is therefore very competitive.

Class Location
