Limited Medical Radiography Diploma
The Limited Medical Radiography (LMR) program provides a progressive academic and clinical educational environment by training students to become highly competent and qualified to administer ionizing radiation for medical diagnostic imaging purposes.
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.
All courses require a C or better for successful completion. Core Courses (LMR, MED, and RAD) require a minimum 78% C and General Education / General Studies courses (CSS and MTH) require a minimum 70% C.
The LMR clinical requirement consists of 370 hours. Due to availability of clinical space, these hours must be completed during the day. Students may not receive payment / reimbursement of any type for clinical and/or externship hours required in their academic program. Students may also not perform these clinical and/or externship hours with their employer in the capacity of their regular position.
Radiology Department has an additional policy and procedure manual.
Courses with RAD and LMR prefixes are not currently available online.
