Mary Dennis on Rad Tech

Radiologic Technologists are specially trained allied health care professionals who use radiography (x-ray) equipment to produce images (radiographs) of tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body to diagnose pathology and injury. Radiographers provide patient care and comfort in a manner to assure their physical safety and radiation protection, and also assist the radiologists (physicians specializing in the use of x-rays for diagnosis and treatment) during patient radiographic exams.
