The Radiologic Technology Program

Radiologic technology is more than X-rays and ultrasounds. It’s an obligation to physicians who depend on radiographic images to diagnose diseases and injuries. It’s a commitment to patients who deserve compassionate care. And if you are ready to become part of a field that saves lives every day, Austin Peay State University’s programs in radiography, nuclear medicine technology and diagnostic medical sonography will set you on the path to success. 

Mission Statement 

The mission of the Radiologic Science Program is to provide training in the field of imaging science.  The goal of the program will be to fulfill the needs of healthcare providers in the community and surrounding regions.  Serving people by being a provider requires critical thinking and technical skills to offer the best possible care.  To prepare the students to meet these requirements, they are provided with various levels of training.  This training includes theory, clinical practice, didactic learning, laboratory testing, and competency testing in the clinical setting.  Upon successful completion of the program, graduating students will be prepared to meet the requirements for an entry-level position in radiology.
