Radiologic Technology

If the hand be held between the discharge-tube and the screen, the darker shadow of the bones is seen within the slightly dark shadow-image of the hand itself… For brevity’s sake I shall use the expression ‘rays’; and to distinguish them from others of this name I shall call them ‘X-rays.’

― Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen

Our Radiologic Technology Program provides training in radiologic technology science. This program is an accredited program by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

What Students Say

“I chose Cypress College because of its outstanding reputation as well as its credibility for the Radioglogic Technician program. I commuted over an hour to get to Cypress College and it was more than every good thing I heard. Because of the college’s reputation, I was able to find multiple employments as soon as I received my licenses for X-ray.”

“The reputation of Cypress College and the quality of the training I received in the Radiologic Technology program has enabled me to be in my current job. Even though I have less than one year of experience in the field, I now work as the only X-ray tech of a fairly busy out-patient center. Without the strong foundations in positioning and patient care I received at Cypress College, I do not think I would have been qualified for or given this job.”
