Industrial Forum: Radiology

Industrial radiologic technicians take x-rays of manufactured products, such as gas and oil pipelines, boilers and pipes, to determine their levels of durability, quality and safety. According to the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors, industrial radiologic technicians must attend a radiation safety course, have on-the-job training and pass a written test, as required by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and individual states. Successful completion of these requirements can lead to professional certification as an industrial radiographer. 

In general, an associate's program in this field covers topics in radiation biology and physics, instrumentation, and, most importantly, safety procedures. Many programs also offer courses in industrial radiology. Some schools offer certificate programs specifically in industrial radiologic technology.
