The Radiology Department is comprised of various imaging techniques 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 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.
