Working As A REGISTERED RADIOLOGIST ASSISTANT
As patient demand increases for medical imaging services, radiology teams and resources can be stretched thin. To improve efficiency and patient care, many medical facilities look to registered radiologist assistants (R.R.A.s) to provide advanced level support to radiologists. To become an R.R.A., you must complete an advanced educational program and meet a range of additional requirements. Your job responsibilities might include assessing and managing patients, performing select clinical procedures, and reporting initial findings to a radiologist.
As an R.R.A., you’ll be an important part of a medical team, performing many procedures that a radiologist would otherwise do. This rewarding career will continue to challenge you and enable you to advance in your profession.
