Radiography

Radiographers are essential members of the health care team, serving as experts in the performance of examinations requiring the use of x-rays and skilled in the use of highly complex machinery. They obtain radiographic images of the human body for diagnostic interpretation by a physician (radiologist), choosing the most appropriate factors to limit patient radiation dose, while maintaining the quality of the images. Potential areas of work include conventional radiography, fluoroscopy, vascular imaging, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, mammography and quality management.
