Program Information

Field of Study:Radiologic Technology/Science - Radiographer
Description:Medical Radiologic Technology (MRT) is the art and science of correctly positioning the patient and X-ray equipment to produce and record images for visualizing the extent of disease or injury. The Medical Radiologic Technology program teaches the medical radiologic technologist to be responsible for the safe and competent operation of a wide range of X-ray generating machines, digital image acquisitions and accessory equipment. Students are in class for the majority of the first year and will complete a three week practicum. The second year is comprised primarily of clinical practica experience with students returning to SAIT for three weeks of theory instruction.

To support learning, students will participate in several online courses throughout the practica, and therefore will require access to a computer with Internet access and a printer.
