Biomedical Diagnostic and Therapeutic Sciences (Radiologic Technology)

Radiologic technologists are responsible for administering ionizing radiation to patients for diagnostic or research purposes.

The primary responsibility of the radiologic technologist is to integrate advanced radiographic techniques and positioning with applied knowledge of anatomy and physiology for the imaging of internal structures.  Practitioners of radiologic technology must possess qualities such as good communication and a desire to work directly with patients.
