Option Overview

This option prepares students to perform entry level diagnostic examinations on patients utilizing analog and digital technology to produce diagnostic images in a diverse healthcare environment. The field of radiography includes general radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, and cardiovascular and interventional technology.

Criminal Offender Record Information and Sex Offender Registry Information Checks

As a prerequisite for a clinical placement in Medical Radiography, all students must undergo a Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) check and a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check. These checks are required due to potential unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly during a clinical experience. Students found to have certain criminal convictions or pending criminal actions will be presumed ineligible for clinical placement. The College is authorized by the Commonwealth’s Department of Criminal Justice Information Services, pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 167-178B, to access CORI records. Sex Offender checks shall be performed pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws, Chapter 6, Sections 178C-178P.

For more information regarding the College’s CORI/SORI check process, please contact the College CORI/SORI Officer at 617-228-2193.
