Ohio State's Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division prepares graduates for leadership roles in the radiologic sciences. The Division offers undergraduate academic programs leading to a bachelor's of science and a master's of science in advanced practice. The Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division offers undergraduate programs in radiography, sonography and radiation therapy.
Radiography utilizes x-ray generating equipment to produce radiographic images of the human body. Radiographers work in a variety of settings including fluoroscopy, surgery, mammography, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Sonography is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
Radiation Therapy involves treating disease with penetrating beams of high-energy radiation. It is used to treat cancer, either alone or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Radiation therapists are responsible for accurately recording, interpreting and administering the treatment prescribed by radiation oncologists.
The programs prepare students for a variety of different career paths, including clinical practice, education, administration and research. The Division utilizes a variety of clinical settings, including urban and rural hospitals, ambulatory imaging centers and private clinics. Students get the opportunity to work alongside expert faculty and staff at one of the nation’s top academic medical centers and earn a competitive edge in the health care field.
