About The Profession
Radiologic Technology is a continuously evolving health science profession that combines the safe use of ionizing radiation with technologically advanced electronic acquisition and reconstruction of images. The radiologic technologist’s primary task is to provide adequate patient care and produce diagnostic radiographic images. These quality images are evaluated and interpreted by the radiologist, a physician who specializes in reading the exams and diagnosing disease. Only when high quality exams and accurate diagnoses are obtained can patients be provided with the appropriate course of treatment.
