National Radiologic Technology Week is an annual event established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists to celebrate the important role medical imaging professionals play in patient care and health care safety. The weeklong celebration highlights the radiologic technology profession and raises public awareness about radiologic technologists. Lincoln Land Community College has offered an Associate Degree Radiography Program since the early 1970s, and it is still going strong!
The first National Radiologic Technology Week® was held July 22-29, 1979. The annual celebration was later changed to November to commemorate the anniversary of the x-ray’s discovery by Wilhelm Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895.
The theme for this year is Many Views with One Vision.
