AAS in Diagnostic Medical Imaging Radiography

Diagnostic medical imaging, like Radiography (X-Ray), has become an increasingly popular field for those interested in pursuing a career in healthcare. X-Ray Techs, also called Radiography Techs, use radiologic technology to create images of bones and other structures inside the body. They work with patients to prepare them for the procedure and work with X-Ray equipment to ensure that the images are clear and accurate.

X-Ray technologists typically have an associate's degree in radiologic technology, and most states require licensure and/or certification.
