X-ray technology has become more complex in recent years. Operating x-ray equipment requires physical flexibility and knowledge about the human body as well as radiation safety. In fact, all states require formal training for persons who aspire to work as a limited scope x-ray technician.

Associate degree students also take general education courses to develop personal and management skills that can help advance their careers. These courses focus on communications – including a course specifically on communications for healthcare professionals – and psychology.
