Radiography is the profession in which diagnostic medical images are made using x-rays and other radiations. The radiographer may work independently or with a physician to create images in the areas of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), mammography, cardiovascular interventional technology (CIT) and others. Radiographers must exercise initiative and judgement in obtaining the images necessary for adequate physician interpretation. As with the other radiation science professions, the patients’ confidence must be obtained while translating a “high tech” process into a humane experience that provides an unparalleled view of life.
