What does an x-ray tech/radiographer do?
Radiologic technologists make up the third-largest group of healthcare professionals—surpassed in number only by physicians and nurses.
A primary responsibility of many technologists is to create images of patients’ bodies using medical equipment. This helps doctors diagnose and treat diseases and injuries. You'll split your work between technological tasks and direct patient care.
