Radiography

Caring for patients

Diagnosing certain medical conditions or injuries often requires physicians to go beyond a routine physical examination; they need to see inside the body, so an x-ray of the affected area is ordered. Radiographers work with patients to acquire the necessary diagnostic images. If you’re detail-oriented, caring, interested in anatomy and physiology, able to work under pressure, and inclined to work with technology and people, a career as a radiographer may be a satisfying choice for you.

LTC offers the Radiography program in cooperation with Nicolet College. All core Radiography classes are offered in a traditional setting at LTC and use Interactive Video Conferencing to link the instruction to Nicolet College.

Accreditation

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) promotes excellence in education and elevates quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography. The program has an 8-year accreditation with the next review date in First Quarter of 2026.
