Radiologic Technologists (also referred to as radiographers) are integral members of the health care team that image the human body utilizing ionizing radiation (x-rays). Taking x-rays on humans requires extensive knowledge of safe radiation practices and patient positioning. Skilled radiographers save our population from unnecessary and unsafe levels of radiation exposure.
Radiographers are generally employed in hospitals, doctor's offices, chiropractor's offices, as well as stand alone imaging centers. Although imaging is the primary function of the radiographer, patient care is also emphasized as a vital function of the radiographer.
