• CCBC student practices giving a patient an x-ray.


Radiography uses x-ray radiation to create images of the tissues, organs, bones and vessels that make up the human body.

Most people are familiar with chest x-rays and also know that x-rays are the best way to diagnose broken bones. The radiographer (x-ray technologist) produces x-ray images of human anatomy for the physician to read and make a diagnosis.
