Radiography Program

The Radiography Associate of Science Program at Indiana University School of Medicine provides students with hands-on learning and patient care experience starting within the first month of training. This 22-month program provides students with knowledge and communication skills to effectively perform radiographic procedures and evaluate images. In addition to clinical training, students pursue original research and can pursue a study abroad experience. Graduates of this program are qualified to work as entry-level radiologic technologists.

What is radiography?

Radiography is an area of radiology that focuses on X-rays to image the human body. X-rays are used to diagnose pathologic processes and allow physicians to see inside the body during procedures. Radiographers use X-rays to image patients in a variety of ways.

What is a radiographer or radiologic technologist?

Radiographers, also called radiologic technologists, are members of a health care team who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care.

Radiographers perform specialized tests, examinations, procedures and treatments using a combination of imaging sciences and radiologic equipment.

What is a typical day like for a radiographer?

A typical day for a radiographer could involve standard X-ray exams in the radiology department, mobile X-ray exams throughout the hospital including the emergency department, live video imaging in the fluoroscopy suites and C-arm imaging in the operating rooms.
