Where It Will Take You
Radiologic technologists (radiographers) are health professionals qualified to perform radiographic examinations ordered by licensed practitioners such as physicians, chiropractors, etc. Radiographers are responsible for the creation of medical x-ray images, the operation of radiologic equipment and the care of patients. They must also be prepared to recognize emergency patient conditions and initiate lifesaving first aid. The radiographer is ultimately responsible for providing the highest quality images with the lowest radiation exposure to the patient.
Education for radiologic technologists is rigorous and includes classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. The program and the profession are physically and mentally demanding. The clinical and classroom experiences require approximately 40 hours of participation per week. This experience is primarily during the day; however, some evening experience is also required.
