Can you imagine yourself in a high-demand, high-paying career in health care medical imaging? Get your start today at State Fair Community College. SFCC offers degree programs in Radiologic Technology and Diagnostic Medical Sonography, plus additional courses to help you expand your knowledge and gain advanced certification.
In the two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program in Radiologic Technology, you will learn basic diagnostic skills using x-ray machines. When you graduate, you are ready to enter the workforce with a strong foundation in radiology.
As part of the Radiologic Technology program, the college also offers several eight-week courses in Computed Tomography (CT)* for registered radiologic technologists or registry-eligible second-year students who want to improve their marketability by gaining advanced certification. CT uses ionizing radiation, a scanner and a computer to create three-dimensional images of sections of the human body to help diagnose disease processes. SFCC also plans to offer Mammography* courses in the future to help registered radiographers enhance their professional skills.
This fall SFCC will offer a new Associate of Applied Science degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.* You will learn skills needed to operate ultrasonic imaging devices to produce, view and analyze diagnostic images, scans, videos, or 3-D volumes of anatomy and diagnostic data. The college also will offer cardiac sonography* classes for sonographers and others in health care who wish to expand their knowledge and obtain their Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography (RDCS) credentials.
In addition to submitting an application for admission to SFCC, students must submit additional applications for admission to all health care medical imaging programs and courses.
