Career Focus

Prepared for immediate employment, advanced certifications, and further education


Students enrolled in the radiography associate degree program at NMU will prepare students for an entry-level position as a registered radiographer.

Radiographers use radiation equipment to produce images of the tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body, as prescribed by physicians, to assist in the diagnosis of disease or injury.

As a radiographer you could be right in the middle of patient diagnosis, working closely with the doctors and patients. As a radiologic technologist, you may be trained to do many important diagnostic tests like:

  • X-Rays: uses radiation to look through the body to see bones and foreign objects
  • Fluoroscopy: makes real-time images of the digestive system.
  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging): uses magnetic imaging to build a 2D or 3D map of body tissues
  • CT (Computed Tomography): makes cross-section views of areas of the body
  • Angiography: used to look at blood vessels.
