What does a Radiologic Technologist do?
Also known as Radiographers and Medical Imaging Technologists, these specialists produce digital images of parts of the human body used to discover a patient’s medical problem. They are also involved in injecting special fluids into patients’ bloodstreams for diagnostic purposes. These professionals may specialize in more specific imaging techniques such as bone densitometry, cardiovascular-interventional radiography, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear medicine. After adequate experience, a Radiologic Technologist may work full-time to teach their skills to others.
