What is a Rad TECH?
The primary role of the radiographer is to provide diagnostic images of the structure and function of anatomy to assist the physician in the treatment of injury and disease. Graduates are prepared with the technical skills necessary to perform a variety of diagnostic radiographic examinations. Examples of examinations performed include chest, upper and lower extremities, spine, ribs, skull, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and reproductive systems.
Message from the Director
Welcome to the UAA Radiologic Technology Program. Our program is very challenging, but also exciting and stimulating, as is the profession of Radiology Technology itself. Students are trained to perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They learn the art and science of the profession through classes in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and patient care. Students are provided opportunities to attend practicum classes at local radiology departments. Departments throughout the entire state employee graduates of our program and many of our former students now have advance training in other modalities building on the graduate level skills they learned through our program. We invite you to explore our site to see if the UAA Radiologic Technology Program is the right opportunity for you.
