As a Radiologic Technologist (RAD), you’ll perform diagnostic imaging exams, like X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and computed tomography (CT) scans to look for patient issues. The RAD works with physicians in hospitals, healthcare facilities, local medical centers, or imaging centers to evaluate the images and determine if more need to be taken, keeps detailed patient records, prepares patients for procedures, and operates equipment for images.
