The Radiologic Technology Program (RADR) educates the student for a career as a Radiologic Technologist. Radiologic Technologists use specialized equipment to perform diagnostic procedures on patients. They use X-rays to produce images that aid in diagnosing disease, trauma and physiological malfunction. Radiologic Technologists develop and critique radiographic images. They may assist physicians (Radiologists) who specialize in the use of ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat disease and injury. The student graduating from the RADR program is awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology.
The Radiologic Technology Program functions in accordance with the mission statement of Laredo College. We strive to provide an educational experience that will produce competent entry level radiographers capable of addressing the needs of the constantly changing and challenging health care environment.
