Medical Radiologic Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology

Southern Alberta Institute of Technology
Medical Radiologic Technology (MRT) is the art and science of correctly positioning the patient and X-ray equipment to produce and record images for visualizing the extent of disease or injury to a patient. The Medical Radiologic Technology program teaches the medical radiologic technologist to be responsible for the safe and competent operation of a wide range of X-ray generating machines, image processing units and accessory equipment. Students are in class for the majority of first year and will complete a three week practicum placement. The second year is mostly practica with students returning to SAIT for three weeks of theory instruction. To support learning, students will participate in several online courses throughout the practica, and therefore will require access to a computer with Internet access and a printer. Certain courses are available by correspondence (distance education) and are marked by an (*) in the Program Outline. The courses must be completed within the time frame shown in the Program Outline. Please be advised that full time student status requires the student take 60 per cent of a full course load per semester. Depending on the number of courses the student completes by correspondence, they may be considered a part-time student which may impact their financial loan status.
