MEDICAL IMAGING/RADIOGRAPHY

Medical Imaging Technicians/Radiographers help physicians diagnose a disease or injury by producing images that the physician can use as a diagnostic tool. These images include x-rays, computed tomography scans (CTs) and magnetic resonance images (MRIs). Radiographers will have a high level of patient contact and must feel comfortable with the use of computers and high-tech equipment. Students are admitted to SUNY Upstate Medical University on a Fall rotation. Graduates from SUNY Upstate are eligible to be nationally certified through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and are qualified for licensure in New York State.
