How to Become an X-ray Technologist

Radiology is a very important component in healthcare. Special equipment is used to examine the human body for the purpose of diagnostics and to treat certain diseases. We are the eyes of medicine, and without x-ray, disease can go untreated or misdiagnosed.

All allied health care is important in medicine, but there is no greater reward than to know that an x-ray you took could save a life.

CHCP’s Radiologic Technology programs are accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), which is recognized by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. There are many campuses located throughout Texas. The Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Fort Worth campuses offer the Limited Medical Radiologic Technologist Certificate Program. The Austin, Dallas, and Fort Worth campuses offer the certificate and Associate Degree Program. Both programs require an assessment test with a minimal score to enroll, and you must be 18 years of age. The LMRT program at CHCP includes all subject matters that prepare our graduates to be experts in the field of Radiology, as well as how to deliver the best patient care possible.
