About Radiologic Technologists

Registered radiologic technologists (R.T.s) are medical professionals who perform diagnostic imaging examinations and administer radiation therapy treatments. R.T.s practice in hospitals, clinics and physician’s offices, and in many clinical specialties, from prenatal care to orthopedics. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety and patient care. R.T.s may practice general radiography, or specialize in an imaging technique such as bone densitometry, cardiac or vascular interventional radiography, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine or sonography. Radiation therapists and medical dosimetrists are technologists who specialize in radiation therapy, which is the application of radiation to treat cancer and other diseases.
