Learn how to assist in diagnosing illnesses through x-rays and other diagnostic imaging procedures with a Radiography Associate of Applied Science degree from Montco. Our credit program is held at Central Campus's new, state-of-the-art Health Sciences Center.

Program outcomes
  • Participate in lecture, laboratory activities, small group presentations, research, and clinical education experiences;
  • Develop the critical thinking, technical and interpersonal communication skills needed for the practice of diagnostic radiography;
  • Learn how to safely apply the principles of ionizing radiation in both diagnostic and fluoroscopic procedures.

Although more than 60 percent of all radiography jobs are in hospitals, you can also work in physician’s offices, medical and diagnostic laboratories, including diagnostic imaging centers, and outpatient care centers. Employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase 15 percent in the next decade–faster than average for all occupations.
