Radiologic Science

Associate of Applied Science Degree.

About the program:

Radiologic Science is both an art and a science. It is the largest of the allied health professions. Radiologic Technologists, also known as Radiographers and Medical Imaging Technologists, are trained in the specialized technical area of medical radiography. Radiologic Technologists use their skills and knowledge of human anatomy and physiology, X-ray equipment and physics of X-ray production to create diagnostic radiographic images in a wide variety of settings. The Radiologic Science Program at Kilgore College prepares students to enter the profession of radiography through classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences. An energized lab allows Radiologic Science students to simulate real life experiences on our campus before entering the clinical environment. Students are prepared to assume a professional role in the field of Radiologic Science upon successful program completion.
