About the Radiography Program

Radiography involves the use of x-radiation or other forms of energy to construct images of the human body for the purpose of diagnosing disease. It is an essential branch of medical science. Technologists use highly sophisticated computers and equipment to assist physicians in patient care. NOVA is pleased to offer several programs in diagnostic imaging.

The degree program in Radiography is a full-time, five-semester sequential curriculum leading to an Associate in Applied Science Degree and eligibility to sit for the National Certification Examination in Radiography sponsored by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (A.R.R.T.).
