Radiography

Radiography is a challenging medical specialty concerned with the diagnosis of disease by various imaging methods such as conventional x-ray, fluoroscopy, computerized tomography, ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging.

Radiographer

Radiographers use radiation equipment to produce images of tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body, as prescribed by physicians, to assist in the diagnosis of diseases or injury.  Radiographers strive to provide quality patient care and are particularly concerned with limiting radiation exposure to patients, themselves, and others.  Radiographers use problem-solving and critical thinking skills to perform medical imaging procedures by adapting variable technical parameters of the procedure to the condition of the patient.
