The Radiology Technology Field Career Path

0 Comment

This paper tells that radiography deals with the examination of internal organs, bones, cavities and foreign objects etc while sonography makes use of high-frequency ultrasound in order to take images from sensitive parts of our body (see the photographs given above). Nuclear medicine examines how the body and organs function with the help of radioactive tracers whereas radiotherapy uses radiations in a controlled manner to shrink or eradicate tumor cells from the body. Apart from the above duties, Radiologic Technologists help the doctors in performing some of the complicated diagnosis using the radiology equipment. They normally work in hospitals, nursing homes and in medical laboratories. Cancer like diseases are increasing day by day in the current world and careful diagnosis of the disease is important for the doctors to prepare effective treatment options. In other words, the importance of radiology is increasing every day and hence the demand for qualified and experienced radiologists is also skyrocketing. Radiologists are getting a good salary compared to some of the other professions generally and the healthcare industry specifically. Radiologic Technologists use equipment such as x-ray machines, ultrasound machines, magnetic resonance scanners, positron emission scanners, etc. Moreover, as technology advances more and more technologically sophisticated machinery are also entering the market. Radiologic Technologists need to constantly update their knowledge in order to succeed fully in this field. The figures given in the paper will give some idea about the complexity of operations performed by the Radiologic Technologists.
