Careers

Radiologic Technology is a science which requires the Registered Radiologic Technologist or RT to use various medical diagnostic equipment to create images of patients bodies which help doctors diagnose and treat injuries and disease. The RT utilizes a combination of technical knowledge, knowledge of anatomy, radiation protection methods and human compassion to safely create quality medical images. “Diagnostic Radiography” includes a variety of diagnostic imaging procedures which use x-rays, a form of radiation energy, to create a medical image. An RT registered in Diagnostic Radiography or RT(R) performs procedures that create static and dynamic images of bones, soft tissue organs and the vascular system. RTs are employed by hospitals, medical clinics, mobile imaging services, government agencies and commercial sales organizations. RTs can expand their opportunities by specializing in other imaging disciplines beyond Diagnostic Radiography, including computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, sonography, radiation therapy or with advanced education a career as a radiologist assistant.
