Description
Medical Radiologic (or x-ray) technologists produce images of a body part or system using equipment that emits x-rays. This program develops the skills required to perform diagnostic/interventional imaging procedures using ionizing radiation and diagnostic imaging equipment.

The profession of radiological technologist involves a broad variety of procedures and covers a number of specialties including:

  • General radiography, i.e., x-rays of the chest, bones, joints, gastrointestinal studies, and spine
  • Mammography to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages
  • Angiography to examine the heart, blood vessels, and blood flow
  • Fluoroscopy, i.e., real-time images that show movement
  • Computerized tomography (CT scans), i.e., detailed cross-sectional images of the body

As part of their professional duty, technologists:

  • Explain the procedure to patients
  • Answer questions as fully as possible
  • Contribute to patient education
  • Comfort patients and provide emotional support
  • Position patients and equipment correctly
  • Ensure patients, staff, and visitors are protected from radiation
  • Monitor patients during the procedure
  • Assist the radiologist for angiographs and interventional procedures
  • Operate the equipment

The radiologist, a doctor who specializes in interpreting x-rays, studies the images and dispenses advice that helps the treating physician make a diagnosis and prescribe an appropriate course of treatment to the patient.

Radiological technologists make up about 80% of the 10,000 members represented by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT). Visit www.camrt.ca for more information.

This program has been recognized by the Canadian Forces. Visit http://cfo-oafc.accc.ca/search.php for recognition information.

All Allied Health programs have CASPer® as part of their admissions process.

WHAT IS CASPer?

CASPer® is a selection tool used by academic programs to help assess applicants for non-academic attributes or people skills. The CASPer test is completed online.

CASPer is a form of situational judgement test. Situational judgement tests are a type of psychological test which presents the test-taker with realistic, hypothetical scenarios and may ask the individual what they would do in the dilemma and why they would do it. Situational judgement tests tend to determine behavioral tendencies, assessing how an individual will behave in a certain situation, and knowledge instruction, which evaluates the effectiveness of possible responses.

Red River College’s CASPer is made up of two parts:

CASPer Test: The CASPer online test is approximately 90 minutes in length and is comprised of 12 sections. Test takers have 5 minutes to type their responses to questions.

CASPer Snapshot: The CASPer Snapshot is 3 video questions. During the video questions, you have 2 minutes to answer the question verbally and record yourself on video. The CASPer Snapshot can be done at any time before or after your CASPer test. Instructions on how to complete this will be on your account on the CASPer website after you register for the CASPer.

Once completed, the applicant is rated in predetermined areas using a rubric and rating scale. In the end, the scores from all questions are totaled for an overall score for each applicant. Your scores are sent to Red River College by CASPer. Applicants are then ranked accordingly and offered a seat in the program. Applicants who have applied to more than one AHS program will only participate in one CASPer test. Applicants are responsible for the cost of the CASPer test.

The dates for the CASPer test in 2020-21 are (subject to change):

Aug 13, 2020 - 5:00 PM EDT
Aug 30, 2020 - 1:00 PM EDT
