In most community colleges, the most popular degree program is that of radiography. Because of its popularity, it is also one of the most difficult programs to get into. Each school can only accept so many new students into their radiography programs each year, so most of them have very strict admissions guidelines. The field of radiography involves doing imaging like x-rays. Some places call them x-ray technicians, but they are the same thing as radiographers. The radiographer is responsible for protecting themselves and the patient from getting extra radiation on parts of the body that do not need x-ray imaging. Some of their other duties include: maintaining the imaging equipment to ensure that it is always functioning properly, interpreting the imaging results and consulting with the doctor, and getting the patient to and from their exam room or hospital room and the x-ray room.

As previously mentioned, if you want to be a radiographer in New York, you need to get an associate's degree in radiography. Because of the strict admissions guidelines, there are certain things you have to do in order to be considered for program admission. You must make really good grades in science and math classes, complete some job shadowing of a radiographer on the job, and then complete an interview with the admissions committee. They have to require all of this so they can ensure the few students they are able to admit each year will be successful in completing the program.

For the most part, radiographers make really good money for what they do. In New York, they can make anywhere from $48,000 a year to $56,000 a year on the average. To put it in perspective, the average annual salary in the entire United States is around $55,000 a year, or around $27 an hour. But they work hard to get there and they work hard for their money once they get hired.

There is a lot of mathematics involved in the field of radiography. You also need to be sure that you can understand the doctor's instructions about what part of the body they need imaging of. There are different positions you need to put the patient in, depending on where the x-ray needs to be. So you will need to be sure you have the patient positioned correctly so that you get an accurate image of that part of the body. There have been misdiagnoses before because of faulty x-rays, so this is important to master.
