Radiologic technology uses complex medical imaging tools to diagnose diseases and internal injuries. Interventional radiology uses medical imaging to guide the actual treatment of ailments. Curricula of online radiology bachelor degree programs cover procedural knowledge necessary to operate these medical imaging tools, as well as human anatomy, business management, and the ethical standards that underpin careers in healthcare.

Computed tomography (CT) is a form of medical imaging that takes detailed scans of the inside of the body and can diagnose various forms of cancer. Online bachelor's of radiologic sciences degrees often offer a CT concentration option to provide students with the procedural and anatomical knowledge and ethical understanding needed to pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) CT certification exam.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) utilizes radio waves, a magnetic field, and a computer to produce detailed images of specific structures within the body. MRI concentration options are common in online bachelor's of radiologic science degrees and prepare graduates for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist's MRI certification exam.

Online radiology degree programs often offer courses in health administration and management to prepare working radiographers for managerial positions in healthcare.

Online radiology bachelor's degree programs are designed for two types of students: those who are pursuing a career in radiology or those who already possess certification from the ARRT or an associate degree in radiologic science and want to further their education with specified certification that requires a bachelor's degree. Some schools cater to one type of student or offer only a completion program.

The most common accrediting institution for programs in radiology degrees is the Joint Review Committee of Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The JRCERT approves the credentials of educational institutions to ensure they prepare students for the ARRT exams and for real-world situations. An online bachelor's of science degree in radiologic science often requires prior radiologic science certification from the ARRT.

Six U.S. agencies award regional accreditation, the most common and prestigious type of accreditation. Regionally accredited institutions typically do not accept transfer credit from nationally accredited schools. The Department of Education provides a comprehensive list of accredited institutions on its website.

Graduates of online radiology bachelor's degree programs specialize in areas such as MRI, CT, and mammography. The duty of radiologic technologists to create a good atmosphere for patients is obvious in the ARRT's emphasis on ethics in radiologic science. Graduates with a well-rounded bachelor's in radiology technology become integral contributors to an atmosphere of compassionate, quality patient care.
