XRay Vision is your superpower

A radiologic technologist, or radiographer, performs diagnostic medical imaging examinations. Radiologic technologists are healthcare professionals who adjust and maintain imaging equipment, prepare patients for various procedures, take medical histories, answer questions about any procedures and help patients feel at ease. Additionally, radiographers will sometimes work with physicians to evaluate images and to determine whether additional images need to be taken.

Radiologic technologists play an important role in the medical field by working with innovative technology, helping patients both physically and emotionally and contributing to provide the best radiologic images for the physician, in order to diagnose and treat patient injuries and conditions. I have been teaching Radiology for 14 years and I really enjoy educating our students about radiation protection and the radiologic procedures they will perform on a daily basis. I enjoy seeing the progress the students make to become professionals, ready for their careers!
