Diagnostic Imaging Physical Requirements

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the nationally recognized accreditation body for Diagnostic Imaging has stated in the document: “Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography” that a program is required to have standards “designed to promote academic excellence, patient safety, and quality healthcare.” These standards require student competence in the operation of dedicated equipment in a knowledgeable and safe manner, the application of technical intelligence, and the ability to provide emotional assistance and physical care to patients during Diagnostic Imaging procedures.

The following technical standards and essential functions outline reasonable expectations of a student in the Diagnostic Imaging Program for the performance of common functions. The student must be able to perform the physical requirements of the profession in a variety of classroom, lab and/or clinical situations. Students who do not meet these physical requirements may not therefore be able to meet the physical requirements of the clinical health care partners and thus may not  be able to complete the required clinical course work for the completion of the LBCC program.
