GWINNETT-NORTH FULTON

For the ninth consecutive year, graduates of the Gwinnett Tech Radiologic Technology program have again achieved a 100-percent pass rate on their national certifying exam.

Radiologic Technology Program Director Sally Knab said all 30 of the 2014 graduates passed the recent American Registry of Radiologic Technologies certifying exam. In addition, the program has maintained its 99.9-percent overall pass rate since 1986.

"The continued success of Gwinnett Tech students on this national exam is a testament to their hard work and to the commitment of their instructors," Knab said. "We couldn’t be prouder of these graduates and the high level of patient care they’ll take into the workplace."

Radiologic Technologists play an integral role in the diagnostic process. They are responsible for producing high-quality images that help radiologists detect injuries and disease. They may perform a range of specific imaging examinations such as mammography, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.

The program prepares students for positions in radiologic departments in general hospitals, veterans administration hospitals, physician’s offices, outpatient clinics, and federal and state health agencies.

Gwinnett Tech offers an associate degree in Radiologic Technology and certificate options for Computed Tomography Clinical Specialist and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Specialist. Gwinnett Tech’s Imaging Sciences Department holds information sessions each month. Upcoming sessions are Sat., Sept. 6, and Sat., Oct. 4, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., Building 200, Room J246, on the Gwinnett Tech campus. For more information, call 678-226-6404.
