About the Department
The approval of the Department of Medical Radiologic Technologies at Zarqa University was issued in the academic year 2022/2023. The department offers an integrated bachelor’s program in applied radiologic technologies, as the department teaches students and trains them scientifically and practically to acquire the necessary skills to successfully practice work in the field of radiologic technologies and its various applications. The department's educational programs are implemented through courses that include anatomy and histology, physiology, pathology, nursing foundations, radiological anatomy, radiation physics and radiation protection, diagnostic radiography techniques, ultrasound, magnetic resonance, computerized tomography, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapy.
The Department of Medical Radiologic Technologies at Zarqa University is a distinguished department in teaching radiologic technology and applied medical imaging, supports the process of development, research, and development in Jordan and abroad, and contributes to building a healthy society.
Diagnostic radiology and its applications are considered one of the most important pillars in any health facility concerned with providing medical care services, as it was not limited to its vital role in diagnosing diseases only, but also went beyond that to its use in treatment. Radiology and its techniques have passed since the discovery of X-rays on the eighth of November of the year 1895 to this day, with rapid developments, radiology sciences have branched out to include multiple applications and technologies.
Radiology technicians (technologists) are part of a medical establishment's medical staff and healthcare sector. As part of their work, radiologists independently perform very complex diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that require a broad theoretical background, solid clinical training, and high technical capabilities.
Accordingly, the department graduates can make and understand radiological images of all kinds, and work with radiologists, nuclear medicine doctors, and doctors specializing in examining tumors and other diseases. The program also qualifies graduates to work as medical technicians in the field of diagnostic radiology techniques in radiology and medical imaging departments in hospitals and health centers.
