A radiologic technologist processes detailed images of the bone structure and soft tissue of a human body appropriate for analyzing and diagnosing, applies appropriate patient care, and recognizes patient conditions essential for successful completion of the procedure. Diagnostic radiologic technologists employ a range of sophisticated equipment to produce high quality images to diagnose an injury or disease. They use a range of modalities including:
X-rays - to look through tissue to examine bones, cavities and foreign objects
Ultrasound - uses high frequency sound and is increasingly used due to its versatility in obstetrics, including fetal monitoring throughout pregnancy, gynecology, abdominal, pediatrics, cardiac, vascular, and musculo-skeletal
Fluoroscopy - live motion X-ray (constant radiation) usually used to image the digestive system
CT (computed tomography) - which provides cross-sectional views (slices) of the body
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) - builds a 2-D or 3-D map of different tissue types within the body
Nuclear medicine - this uses radioactive tracers which can be administered to examine how the body and organs function, for example the kidneys or heart. Certain radioisotopes can also be administered to treat particular cancers, (i.e. thyroid)
