Will Pickeral Participates in ASRT Student Leadership Development Program
William L. Pickeral completes his trip to Albuquerque, NM to attend the Student Leadership Academy for the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. Will Pickeral was selected by the ASRT to participate in the Student Leadership Academy and the picture provided is on Will receiving his certificate from the ASRT President, Sandra Hayden, MA, RT(T), FASRT. Will is a senior in the OSU Radiography program and is the President of our Alpha chapter of Lambda Nu honor society. Will is working hard to complete summer semester and also planning many activities for raising awareness for our programs to other OSU students. Will is working with Chelsea Schneider, VP, Sophia Calcara, Secretary, and Shana Hay, Treasurer to plan a memorable National Radiologic Technology Week as well as many recruitment activities. We are so excited about Will’s involvement in ASRT and his future volunteer efforts.
Ohio State's Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division prepares graduates for leadership roles in the radiologic sciences. The Division offers undergraduate academic programs leading to a bachelor's of science and a master's of science in advanced practice. The Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division offers undergraduate programs in radiography, sonography and radiation therapy.
Radiography utilizes x-ray generating equipment to produce radiographic images of the human body. Radiographers work in a variety of settings including fluoroscopy, surgery, mammography, computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Sonography is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
Radiation Therapy involves treating disease with penetrating beams of high-energy radiation. It is used to treat cancer, either alone or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy. Radiation therapists are responsible for accurately recording, interpreting and administering the treatment prescribed by radiation oncologists.
The programs prepare students for a variety of different career paths, including clinical practice, education, administration and research. The Division utilizes a variety of clinical settings, including urban and rural hospitals, ambulatory imaging centers and private clinics. Students get the opportunity to work alongside expert faculty and staff at one of the nation’s top academic medical centers and earn a competitive edge in the health care field.
