The Radiology Department is comprised of various modalities which
perform diagnostic tests ordered by your physician. It may be as simple
as a chest x-ray or a more invasive procedure such as an arteriogram of
the brain. Radiologic technologists are the healthcare professionals
that perform certain diagnostic exams independently or assist
radiologists in the performance of invasive procedures. Radiologic
technologists are the third largest category of healthcare professionals
and are essential to providing quality patient care. All technologists
within the Radiology Department must go through an approved educational
program, comply with ethics standards, and pass a certification exam
within their chosen discipline. Also, they must complete continuing
education to maintain their certification. Click the tabs below
