To properly treat ailments, physicians often need to see what is going on inside the body. That's where radiologic technology comes into play. Tools such as x-ray imaging, CT scans, and other imaging technologies give health care workers the ability to diagnose everything from bone fractures to cancer and even analyze brain activity levels.
Radiologic technologists are highly trained health care workers who blend science, art, and compassion together to produce the images that lead to answers and treatment.
