COLLEGE OF RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY
The College of Radiologic Technology offers a four-year degree program that prepares and develops a student in any field of Radiologic Technology. Radiologic Technology is a healthcare profession and plays a continually growing role in medicine. It is an “art and a science” of creating images of the human body using ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiofrequency, and sound waves, or even creating a 3-dimensional image from multiple cross-sectional images.
The College of Radiologic Technology program consists of general education subjects and professional subjects. Students in their fourth year are assigned to accredited training hospitals in La Union and Baguio City for their internship program.
The College of Radiologic Technology is offered in response to the need of the country for medical imaging technologists who are competent to deliver the full spectrum of Radiologic Technology services required in Modern Health Care.
A top-quality college that produces quality graduates trained according to established standards and requirements of Radiologic Technology
To prepare students for the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitude for service by providing academic and clinical training in the field of Radiologic Technology and promoting growth and development in the student as an individual and a member of the community.
The CRT accepts its essential role in enhancing relevant and responsive education in the field of physical and respiratory therapy believing that this will ensue into a competent and knowledgeable individual imbued with Christian values.
To equip graduates with the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will enable them to become globally competent Radiologic Technologists.
To produce graduates who commits to promoting the value of pursuing life-long learning through research, continuing education, and clinical practice.
To inculcate values and beliefs as Christians with great consideration to their social and ethical responsibilities in the practice of the Radiologic Technology profession.
To produce Radiologic Technologists who are receptive to changes in the demands of the profession for them to deliver the full spectrum of Radiologic Technology services required in Modern Health Care.

Dean, College of Radiologic Technology
Welcome to the College of Radiologic Technology Web page!
Our college is one of the Health Sciences Programs of Lorma Colleges that has produced graduates who are now employed anywhere around the world.
Radiologic Technology (Rad Tech), also known as Medical Imaging, basically deals with positioning patients and taking quality images of different parts of the body. In a sense, it is just like photography, however, what is produced are images within the body with the use of radiation, sound waves, magnets and computers. Using their combined knowledge of physics, human anatomy and physiology, medical imaging technologists produce these “pictures” that are crucial for diagnosing diseases and treating patients. Rad Tech is ranked as one of the top medical developments in “recent” history as both patients and medical professionals have experienced the vast benefits of medical imaging in the continuing war on medical ailments and life-threatening diseases as well as disease prevention. It is a science combining advanced technology and human compassion.
In these interesting times where taking pictures and selfies has become quite the norm for a generation that thrives on evolving technology, a profession in taking the best shots of what is happening within the body may prove to be appealing. You are cordially invited to enter this world.
“Saving lives through imaging” has been our battle cry and this has never been truer than during this pandemic. Although reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) is considered the test of choice for diagnosis, radiologic tests, especially chest X-rays and computed tomography (CT) have proven to be vitally important tools for diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of patients with COVID-19. Virtually all COVID patients underwent a chest X-ray, usually more than once. I recognize the dedication and heroism of the frontliners who braved the Isolation wards to take those images. In the hospitals of the Ilocos Region, those front liners, those unsung heroes are all, or mostly, graduates of Lorma College of Radiologic Technology. Elsewhere throughout the world, a Lorma graduate is taking that all-important image to aid the health care team in healing a patient. As I always tell my students, the Radiologic Technologist is a significant member of any health care delivery team that strives to turn patients into survivors every day.
The constant growth in this field has created many new and exciting career opportunities and avenues for health care service. With a wide range of imaging instruments that only Radiologic Technologists are licensed to operate, there are several career choices such as Technologists in X-ray, Ultrasound, CT scan, Magnetic Resonance (MRI), Nuclear Medicine, Mammography, and Fluoroscopy, as Therapeutic technologists in Radiation Therapy and Nuclear Medicine, or as Interventional Radiographers for angiography or angioplasty. In addition to health care facilities, graduates can be employed in mobile imaging companies, industrial plants, research centers, and government agencies such as the Department of Health and the military, and colleges, as well as venture into careers in commercial sales and marketing, Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) consultancy or digital medical imaging.
The Radiologic Technology Program at Lorma Colleges continues to train, educate and produce graduates who have the necessary competencies, values and compassion for such a calling. As we have our own X-ray in our laboratory, we can provide our students with firsthand experience in positioning, taking X-rays, and yes, even the feel of developing these images on film. Aiding our local-based instructors are adjunct lecturers from Manila and UAE to complete our young and dynamic faculty.
We have had a satisfactory turnout of alumni who passed the board examinations. In the past 28 years since the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technology was accredited, twenty-five (25) graduates were board topnotchers in the National Licensure Examinations. The Lorma College of Radiologic Technology also had the repeated honor of being awarded as a Top 2 and Top 3 Performing School based on past Board examination results and has maintained a place in the top ten schools of Radiologic Technology nationwide. I am proud to say we are still the top Rad Tech school in Region I. We stand committed at being in the forefront of Radiologic Technology education, meeting challenges head on and instituting changes and innovations through COVID times and beyond.
