Registered Technologist Certification
The American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) offers five primary pathways to certification as a registered technologist in the profession of medical imaging:
- Radiation therapy
- Nuclear medicine
Radiography/radiologic technology is the only supporting primary certification for all modalities in radiology. Note that imaging modalities such as MRI, CT, mammography, DEXA, CV, VI, etc. are post-primary certifications that can only be taken through the ARRT if you are already a registered technologist.
