Radiography is the art and science of producing medical images using X-radiation. These images are used for routine needs or form part of complex investigations. Technologists produce images for the radiologist’s interpretation to aid in medical diagnoses.
To fulfill this need, NIOS has developed a course “Diploma in Radiography” which not only gives you theory of Radiography but also provide hands-on practicals to enhance your skills.
After completion of this skill based course, a learner becomes an X-Ray Technician and is authorized to serve in Government, Semi - Government and Private Sectors.
