Radiologic Technology Pathway, A.S.

What Is Radiologic Technology?

Radiologic Technology is the technical science related to the use of X-rays or radioactive substances for medical diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

Why Study Radiologic Technology?

Radiologic technologists work on the cutting edge of scientific progress. The field encompasses several disciplines from which to choose and, with increasing demand in health care settings around the country, radiologic technology offers the potential for job stability and a good salary.

Radiologic technologists study X-rays or radioactive substances for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Perimeter College offers students the required general studies, then partners with two programs, DeKalb Medical Center (Emory Decatur Hospital) of Radiologic Technology and Grady Health Systems, to offer radiology specialty courses.

After successful completion of the Radiologic Technology pathway and the passage of a national exam, students become registered radiologic technologists (radiographers). Radiologic technologists can specialize in more than one procedure. From performing sonograms for expectant mothers to furnishing X-rays of broken bones to providing radiation treatments, the job is a rewarding one whose contribution to patient care is significant.

This pathway is an associate degree career program established in partnership with local hospitals. It should not be confused with the separate and different Perimeter College pathway, Health Sciences — Radiologic Sciences Pathway, A.S., which constitutes the first two years of a four-year allied health degree that must be completed at a four-year university.

Please be advised that international students in F-1 immigration status are not eligible for the Radiologic Technology Pathway, A.S. program, at Georgia State University’s Perimeter College. The partnering institutions, Grady Health Systems School of Radiologic Technology and Emory DeKalb School of Radiologic Technology, are not authorized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to enroll international students in F-1 status.

Pathway Details

After successful completion of the Radiologic Technology pathway and the passage of a national exam, students may become registered radiologic technologists (radiographers).

As part of Georgia State University, Perimeter College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools: Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) to award associate degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, GA 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Georgia State University.

The DeKalb Medical School (Emory Decatur Hospital) of Radiologic Technology and The Grady Health System School of Radiologic Technology are not accredited by the Commission on Colleges, and the accreditation of Georgia State University does not extend to or include the DeKalb Medical School (Emory Decatur Hospital) of Radiologic Technology or its students or The Grady Health System School of Radiologic Technology or its students.

Although Perimeter College accepts certain course work in transfer toward a credential from the DeKalb Medical (Emory Decatur Hospital) School of Radiologic Technology and The Grady Health System School of Radiologic Technology or collaborates in other ways for generation of course credits or program credentials, other colleges and universities may or may not accept this work in transfer, even if it appears on a transcript from Georgia State University. This decision is made by the institution  considering the possibility of accepting such credits.
