About this Program

Limited X-ray machine Operators (LXMO) are becoming increasingly vital in the healthcare setting. A LXMO can be a career in itself, or a valuable addition for a multi-skilled healthcare professional. Students in this program learn about the x-ray machine, radiation protection, proper exposure factors, and proper patient positioning, all through the convenience of online learning. The program concludes with a clinical observation period and preparation for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Limited Scope exam.
