Radiologic Technology

Radiologic technologists produce X-ray images of parts of the human body for use in diagnosing medical conditions.

They prepare and position patients for radiographic examinations, protect patients from unnecessary radiation, utilize radiographic equipment and select appropriate radiographic technical factors for the examination being performed.
