PRIMARY PATHWAY: RADIOGRAPHY
WORKING IN RADIOGRAPHY
Most radiologic technologists enter the profession as radiographers. In this role, you’ll capture images of patients’ internal organs, soft tissues, and bones using X-ray equipment. You also might assist radiologists with a range of procedures, such as fluoroscopic imaging or gastrointestinal exams that require the use of contrast media.
A career as a radiographer is challenging and rewarding. Working in this field, you’ll be an important part of a medical team that diagnoses and treats patients who have a range of diseases and injuries.
