Prepared for immediate employment, advanced certifications, and further education
Students enrolled in the radiography associate degree program at NMU will prepare students for an entry-level position as a registered radiographer.
Radiographers use radiation equipment to produce images of the tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body, as prescribed by physicians, to assist in the diagnosis of disease or injury.
Diagnostics performed by radiography technicians:
- X-Rays: uses radiation to look through the body to see bones and foreign objects
- Fluoroscopy: makes real-time images of the digestive system.
- MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): uses magnetic imaging to build a 2D or 3D map of body tissues
- CT (Computed Tomography): makes cross-section views of areas of the body
- Angiography: used to look at blood vessels.
