Lone Star College-Montgomery Medical Radiologic Technology graduates capture perfect image of 100% first-attempt pass-rate
THE WOODLANDS, TX - The LSC-Montgomery Medical Radiologic Technology December 2020 graduating class scored a perfect 100% first-attempt pass-rate on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national credentialing examination. All 20 graduating students passed and achieved an average scaled score of 87.8 on the ARRT exam.
“Everyone is very proud of our MRT graduates for this great academic and professional credential achievement,” said Dr. Francis Ozor, LSC-Montgomery Medical Radiologic Technology program director. “It is even more remarkable when you take into account a year enveloped by unexpected and unparalleled disruptions in academia caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Medical radiologic technologists perform a wide variety of radiological imaging procedures including routine diagnostic radiography, fluoroscopy, computed tomography (CT) scanning, interventional radiography, mammography and surgical radiography. The images produced by the technologists are used in the diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of patients.
LSC-Montgomery and LSC-CyFair offer a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree program in Medical Radiologic Technology. The program’s curriculum combines instructive and clinical education experiences enabling the student to acquire knowledge, develop medical imaging skills and professional values, and instill the desire for life-long learning.
“Enrolled students receive classroom instructions on campus and clinical education experiences at affiliated hospitals and outpatient clinics,” said Ozor. “Graduates of the program are effectively prepared to pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ national certification examination at first-attempt and then apply for entry-level positions in the medical radiologic technology profession.”
