A radiographer is a member of the health care team, providing doctors with images needed to diagnose medical conditions or trauma. Skills needed for the field include adaptability and creativity. Like many health care fields, radiology is both a science and an art, with a high degree of patient interaction.
A radiographer uses ionizing radiation to image all parts of the body. Experience is obtained in trauma, special procedures, surgery, and diagnostic areas. Additional areas one may enter upon graduation are Sonography, Medical Resonant Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Oncology, Mammography, Cardiac Catherization Lab and Angiography.
