By Successful Completion of the Radiology Bachelors program students will be Skilled enough to:​

There has never been a more exciting time to enter the field of Radiology and imaging. Over the past few decades, new specialties have emerged. Among them are:

  • Bone densitometry — Known also as dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA), bone densitometry is a type of scan that measures bone density. As we get older, bone density plummets. A bone scan is used to determine if someone is at risk from osteoporosis, which can increase the rate of bone fractures.

  • Computed tomography — Here, a computer controls the motion of the x- ray source and detector, processes the data, and generates an image.

  • Mammography — A technique used to screen for tumors of the breast. This is a particularly exciting area of radiographic technology. Since the introduction of artificial intelligence software to analyze mammograms, they can be read with 99 percent accuracy, minimizing the need for costly and unpleasant biopsies.

  • Magnetic resonance imaging — MRI scanners use strong magnetic fields to generate extremely detailed pictures of the organs in the body to detect disease. Although the technique is noninvasive and doesn't require the use of harmful radiation, the inside of the scanner itself can be very claustrophobic and fiercely noisy.

  • The radiographer therefore needs to be able to calm the patient while instructing them to remain absolutely motionless, a feat requiring extraordinary skill in diplomacy, empathy, and psychology.

  • Cardiovascular interventional radiography — Formerly a sub-specialty of radiology, cardiovascular interventional radiography is now a discipline in its own right, using minimally invasive imaging to guide clinicians in procedures that aim to diagnose and treat disease in every organ system of the body.

  • Nuclear medicine — The use of radioisotopes to diagnose and treat disease. Here, the radiation emanates from inside of the body out.

  • General radiography — The most basic form of radiography, general radiography uses x-rays to produce a fixed image of part of the body. It is used routinely to diagnose fractures.

  • Radiation oncology — Medical densitometry and radiation therapy

  • Virtual colonoscopy screening — a noninvasive method of screening for colon cancer and has been shown to prevent cancer in as many as 94 percent of cases.
