Radiologic technologists, also called radiographers, produce X-ray images of all parts of the human body for diagnosis of medical problems. Radiologic technologists work in hospitals, clinics, physician offices and emergency and urgent care centers. Radiologic technologists may work anywhere from a small private doctor’s office to operating rooms in large metropolitan hospitals.

Radiologic technologists are responsible for all aspects of producing high quality radiographs (X-rays). Patient care and positioning, equipment settings and adjustments for individual patients, patient protection from radiation exposure and analysis of X-ray quality are all important in the radiologic technologist’s work.

The field of radiology is expanding and is being driven by state-of-the-art technologies. New imaging equipment and techniques keep the field interesting and diversified.
