Radiologic Technology is a health care profession whose practitioners work in hospitals, clinics, free-standing imaging centers, and private offices. The Radiologic Technologist (Radiographer) is a member of the health care team who works directly with the patient and the physician, performing a wide variety of diagnostic X-ray procedures.
The Radiographer must be proficient in the knowledge of radiographic exposure, anatomy, patient positioning, the operation of specialized equipment, and the care and management of the patient. The rapid expansion of medical diagnostic imaging has greatly increased the diversity and utility of medical diagnosis.
