Cape Fear Community College’s Radiography program recently received a generous donation of state-of-the-art radiographic equipment from the Cape Fear Memorial Foundation. The gift includes a new patient table, a radiographic tube, an x-ray control panel, and a wall unit, with a combined value of $50,000.
CFCC Radiography Program Director, Donna Collentine, is excited to train students on the new equipment. “Our radiography students will now have the opportunity to practice their skills on the same cutting-edge equipment that is being used in hospitals and clinics around the country,” said Collentine. “We are so grateful to Cape Fear Memorial Foundation for this wonderful donation.”
The CFCC Radiography program is a five semester, full-time program beginning in the fall semester of each year. Classes and labs are held on campus at CFCC, and the clinical education component of the program is conducted in various hospitals and other medical facilities in the surrounding area. Program graduates are eligible to apply to take the national examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists for certification and registration as medical radiographers.
Radiography program graduates can work in radiology departments in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, research and medical laboratories, federal and state agencies and industry. Hospitals also offer a wide variety of subspecialties including orthopedics, mammography, and operating room and trauma areas.
