Fourteen students graduating next month from Rowan-Cabarrus Community College with an associate degree in radiography participated in a pinning ceremony Friday.
The pinning ceremony was in the North Campus Teaching Auditorium. Radiologists from Rowan Regional and NorthEast medical centers are jointly providing the pins for the graduates.
Receiving their pins were Nicole Amos, Jessica Biggers, Sharon Bishop, LeeAnn DeVlieger, Donna Dulin, Misty Elium, Jena Fisher, Kathryn Hildebrandt, Heather Honbarrier, Heather Overcash, Debra Rithamel, Melissa Sherrill, Tamara Smith and Paul Warren.
The 14 graduates will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination for radiography. An ARRT certification allows one to perform medical imaging routines including surgery, trauma and fluorographic exams. ARRT certification also provides a pathway to advanced certifications such as cardiovascular angiography, CT, MRI, PET, SPECT, mammography, bone densitromity and quality management.
RCCCs radiography program prepares students to be radiographers, skilled health care professionals who use radiation and highly technical medical equipment to produce images of the human body.
Program course work includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology and radiobiology. Graduates are employed in hospitals, clinics, physicians offices, medical laboratories, government agencies and in industry positions.
