About

The Radiation Sciences program from Loma Linda University begins at the level of the junior year which emphasizes the more advanced areas in radiologic technology and is designed to prepare graduates for careers in administration, clinical specialties, teaching, or health physics.  This online program starts every quarter.

Overview

The Radiation Sciences program from Loma Linda University provides imaging professionals with the foundational education necessary to advance into various career possibilities, including: advanced imaging modalities; graduate degrees; professional advancement into entry management, education in imaging, and imaging informatics positions.  

Profession 

The medical radiographer, or radiologic technologist, is responsible for the accurate imaging of body structures on a radiograph or other image receptor. The technologist determines proper exposure factors, manipulates medical imaging equipment, evaluates the radiographic image for quality, and provides for patient protection and comfort. The technologist frequently assists the physician team member in specialized procedures. These often require the administration of chemical mixtures to the patient for enhanced viewing of the function of the body systems.

For radiologic technologists educationally prepared beyond the level of the Associate in Science degree, there are numerous career options. Radiology departments in large hospitals offer career opportunities in management, supervision, and research. Excellent opportunities also exist for those who are qualified to teach radiologic technology. In addition, commercial enterprises and state government continually need technologists with advanced training to serve as customer representatives, technical consultants, and health physicists.
