Kayla Grove's insight:

6. Many technicians put 40 or more hours into the workforce.  Depending on the standards, some have evening, on the call and other time slots.  You can choose full or part-time on this job but, you may be needed unexpectedly or may not have a choice.

7. RAdiology technicians are reliable for multiple things including, positioning the patient and equipment correctly to get the most accurate image.  They work closely with the radiologists and cp- workers who exam the image to detect the injury or disease.

8. The American Society of Radiologic Technologists survey of 2013 tested that the average wage per year for a radiology technician is $62,763.  Technicians that are just starting out wage at $45,878 a year.  Technicians that specialize in different areas such as MRI or Mammograph usually receive more money.

Radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging examinations, such as x rays, on patients. MRI technologists operate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners to create diagnostic images.
Kayla Grove's insight:

1.Radiology Technicians are professionals that use diagnostic imaging tests, including  X-rays, MRI's to scan they can examine bones, blood vessels, and more within one image.

 

2. Health care professionals create images using diagnostic imaging exams like, x-rays, to look over patients' bodies. There is another exam technique that uses magnetic resonance to conduct images, this is called MRI's.

 

3. Some different jobs Radiology technicians must do is, adjust the patient and the equipment.  Also, they must use a shield to protect patients from possible damage from radiation.  They must ask patients questions which contain their medical history before proceeding with the exam.

 

4. There are several different diagnoses such as, CT scans and mammographs.  Depending on the test some technicians may create a substance for a patient to take in order for their soft tissue to show up in the pictures.  Specializing in mammographs may result in using low- dose x-rays to create images, mostly used in breasts.

 

5.  Many radiology technicians specialize in nuclear medicine, cardiovascular or even sonographs to expand their knowledge and pay.
