“DO you have any metal on your person?” A typical question asked in the reception area just before a patient is taken in for an MRI scan. Remembering to ask this question is imperative; it ensures the patient’s safety. If forgotten, the magnetic nature of the equipment could result in a life or death situation.
Thus the personnel in the radiology department must function in a systematic manner. Radiologists and doctors diagnose by interpreting images such as X-rays, which have been created by the radiographer, using high-end equipment. Thus a radiographer has an important role to play in saving lives.
What is radiography?
This field took birth in 1895 when X-rays were discovered, the process evolved through the years to be used for diagnostic purposes. To provide the right treatment for a disease or ailment, it’s necessary to make the correct diagnosis. But it’s not always possible to diagnose a disease based on symptoms alone. Here radiography comes to the rescue.
Radiography is used to diagnose the problem by focusing on the internal parts of the anatomy using X-rays, sometimes referred to as ‘X-ray photography’. This field has had a huge impact on the medical field as well as in industrial applications.
Our master’s program in Radiation Technology combines both theoretical and clinical instructions covering topics such as physiology, anatomy, radiation physics, radiation imaging, radiation protection, positioning of patients, radiographic techniques, medical terminology and patient care procedures. Using new imaging techniques , along side doctors and nurses , you will help in quicker and more accurate diagnosis of illness.
