The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) provides
practice standards, scope of practice, and a curriculum model for the academic
preparation of RAs. Graduates of the program are
eligible to apply for the national RA credentialing examination administered
by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT),
as the program
is officially recognized by the ARRT.
The program is offered through the Division of Radiologic Imaging
Sciences in the Department of Imaging and Radiation Sciences.
advised that credentialing requirements for RAs may vary by location
and with time. Some states, for example, may require that RAs be
registered by the ARRT, licensed in accordance with state
regulations, and/or granted practice privileges in writing at each
facility for specific procedures to be performed. Accordingly,
successful completion of the UAMS RA program does not in itself
assure compliance with specific state practice requirements.
