Kettering College Classes Meeting Online, Faculty & Staff Working Remotely, Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College has moved all face-to-face classes and business operations online as we take precautions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe during the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

All student activities & events, including those on campus are canceled until further notice.

Student Services (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records), and Academic Support (tutoring, Writing Center, career services, and advising) have also moved online. It is still their priority to serve students, answer questions, and enroll students for the upcoming semesters.

What is Medical Imaging and Radiologic Technology?

Medical imaging is a technologically advanced and patient care oriented profession that uses a variety of means, such as sound waves (Sonography), radioactive substances (Nuclear Medicine), magnetic field and radiowaves (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and x-rays (Radiologic Technology, Computed Tomography) to diagnose disease processes. These are considered foundational components of the medical imaging profession.

Radiologic Technology consists of producing a series of x-ray or radiographic images, known as a radiographic procedure or exam, in hopes of assisting the patient’s physician to detect anatomic and/or physiological abnormalities. These procedures are performed by personnel very knowledgeable in human anatomy and physiology and highly trained to safely use sophisticated digital radiographic equipment. Education institutions, such as Kettering College, with a radiologic technology program, educate and train students in all aspects of the radiography profession. They provide the foundational curriculum for the medical imaging profession and prepare the radiography graduate for advanced imaging education.

What can I do with a radiologic technology degree?

Individuals with a radiologic technology degree have many options following graduation. First, graduates can obtain employment in a wide variety of clinical locations, such as hospitals, physician’s offices, clinics, or out-patient centers. Second, radiology graduates can work for a medical equipment company that require surgical intervention, such as pacemaker insertion or orthopedic repair. Third and most importantly, graduates can continue their education in advanced imaging to become multi-certified and more marketable to employers. They can also combine advanced imaging education with the completion of a bachelor’s degree. Radiology graduates can also further their education to focus on radiology/hospital management or education.

How much money do I make when I graduate?

The national mean annual wage according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics from May 2016 is $59,260. In Ohio, the mean annual wage is $53,390. For a recent radiography graduate working full time, the annual salary would range between $45,000 and $50,000.

What type of RT (radiologic technologist) makes the most money?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a cardiovascular technologist made a mean annual salary of $57,100 in May 2016. A magnetic resonance imaging (MR) technologist received a mean annual wage of $69,240.
