Welcome to Radiologic Technology



Are you interested in a career as a RADIOLOGIC Technologist?

Radiologic Technology is the health profession concerned with medical imaging for diagnosis and assessment of disease. Radiologic Technology is known by other names including x-ray technology, radiologic technology, radiography, and diagnostic imaging. The radiologic technologist provides a unique blend of direct patient contact with the study of human anatomy and rigorous medical technical expertise. Graduates with a degree in this field are referred to as registered radiologic technologists or radiographers. The career opportunities are numerous and diverse.

The radiologic technologist's main duty is to provide quality patient care and high quality medical images while applying knowledge of anatomy, physiology, positioning, radiographic technique, and precise scientific knowledge. Effective communication with patients, other health professionals, and the public is important. Additional duties may include management of images, evaluating radiologic and computer equipment, performing quality assurance procedures, and providing patient education relevant to specific imaging procedures.

Radiologic Technology at SRJC

The Radiologic Technology Program at SRJC was established in 1971. Both a certificate and a major AS degree in Radiologic Technology is available. The program includes instruction in the operation of x-ray and digital imaging equipment, positioning for radiologic procedures, creating and processing images, patient care, radiologic physics, radiation protection and observational experience in other advanced imaging modalities.

The radiologic technology program at SRJC spans 23 consecutive months including 2 fall, 2 spring and 2 summer semesters.  Students are required to commit themselves for  full time participation for that entire duration.  In addition to the didactic coursework, a minimum of 1785 clinical hours are required in hospitals and radiology departments affiliated with Santa Rosa Junior College. Elective clinical experience in Mammography and MRI is available.  Fundamental knowledge of CT and cross sectional anatomy is included in our core curriculum.

The Radiologic Technology program at Santa Rosa Junior College is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The most recent site visit from JRCERT was in May of 2021.  As a result, the program was awarded accreditation for a period of eight years. The next scheduled JRCERT site visit is May of 2029.  RADT Accreditation Letter
