What are Radiologic Technologists?
Radiologic technologists take images of all parts of the human body for use in diagnosing medical problems. They prepare patients for radiologic examinations, positioning patients so that the correct parts of the body can be imaged. The technologist also provides radiation protection for unexposed areas. After taking the necessary precautions, the technologist positions the radiation equipment at the correct angle and height and sets the controls on the machine to produce images of the appropriate density, detail, and contrast. Afterward, the technologist evaluates the images produced. Technologists also assist physicians in conducting fluoroscopic examinations during which a patient's internal organs are viewed on a monitor.
