2. Our Philosophy

It is our premise that anyone administering ionizing radiation to living tissue, and who is given the job of producing a radiographic exam for the purposes of diagnosis and treatment, should have enough knowledge to sufficiently perform this task, and be limited only in the exams defined in his certificate.

It is our goal that graduates of this program will:
Have the necessary cognitive and clinical competency to pass the ARRT Limited Scope Radiography examinations for state licensure;
Have the knowledge and understanding of principles to produce diagnostic images with the least amount of radiation exposure to the patient, the operator, and the staff;

Be able to successfully critique images, and produce predictable results;

Be compassionate to the needs and feelings of all patients, treating each one like a family member; and

Always act in a professional, caring manner.

It is our belief that our dedication to this philosophy produces the best prepared candidates for the ARRT Limited Scope examination and for offering good patient care.

3. Our Courses

These courses are designed to provide a quality educational program for students who are employed in a physician’s office and who are seeking a limited x-ray certificate.

TESTING
An Entrance Test will be given to be able to monitor the student’s incoming aptitude. There is testing throughout the course as the student is introduced to new material. The Entrance Test is repeated toward the end of the course, and is compared to the results of the initial test.
An Exit Test is given with the intent of taxing the student’s knowledge and understanding of principles of radiographic imaging.

REVIEW FOR STATE-REQUIRED EXAM
Continued online access will be available to review for the ARRT Limited Scope Exam in Radiography.

TEST TAKING AND STRESS REDUCTION
Most people who fail tests or do not react appropriately in an emergency situation do so due to freezing up. Because of this, we prepare the student in test taking techniques, stress reduction, and exam preparation so they can relax, learn, and access the information when it is needed.
