Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology Program now has a new high-tech medical tool thanks to a generous donation from an area hospital. Geisinger Community Medical Center’s Radiology Department donated a Kodak CR 800 Direct View X-Ray imaging system, valued at nearly $41,000 to Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology Program. Program Director Joan Bonczek says, “Opposed from routine film processing, computerized radiography produces the radiographic image electronically, illustrating the image on the work station display. This allows the student to better comprehend positioning concepts and radiographic exposures. The entire process also better prepares the student for the actual clinical environment.” Thanks to this equipment donation, Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology program is now able to expand both X-Ray Exposures and Positioning labs to provide students with even more hands-on education with the same equipment that is being used in the field at hospitals and medical clinics.
