Limited Medical Radiography Diploma

Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for a Limited Scope of Practice in Radiography exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) but offered through the Kentucky Board of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy (KBMIRT). Through the LMR program, graduates are prepared to perform x-ray (radiographic) examinations in clinics, physicians' offices, and urgent care centers. They prepare patients for radiographic examinations by explaining the procedure and ensuring proper positioning of both the patient and the radiographic equipment. Because they provide the necessary x-rays needed to help with the diagnosis of the patient, limited radiographers are valued members of the healthcare team.
