Medical Imaging

Medical Imaging focuses on the production of quality medical images
of patients for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. The Medical
Imaging Department at ECC offers a variety of programs that provide
training in producing images using x-ray radiation or magnetic
resonance as well as providing care to patients undergoing imaging
exams and procedures.

The radiography program prepares students to produce quality
diagnostic images that will assist the physician in the diagnosis and
treatment of injuries and diseases. Upon completion of the associate
degree, students are eligible to take the national certifying
examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic
Technologists (ARRT) and licensed by the Illinois Emergency
Management Agency-Division of Nuclear Safety (IEMA-DNS).

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic
Technology(JRCERT) accredits the Radiography Program. This
accreditation is important because it indicates that the program is
committed to academic excellence, health care quality and patient and
professional safety. JRCERT accreditation demonstrates that the
program adheres to the national educational standards that have been
accepted by the profession. Elgin Community College's Radiography
Program has a full 8-year accreditation which it received in 2012. In
addition, Elgin Community College is regionally accredited through
North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Effectiveness data
for the program is available on the JRCERT and Elgin Community
College websites. Contact information for the JRCERT: Joint Review
