Radiologic Technologist Resume
Radiologic technologists are in charge of capturing images of the human body with the help of radiologic technologies which are afterwards used in diagnosis and medical treatments. They work in hospitals, clinics and private laboratories or medical cabinets.
The work is related to high occupational risks, such as cancer and infectious diseases. The job consists of using nonradioactive substances and placing them in the body of patients in order to highlight different parts and X-ray those parts. Their daily responsibility is that of receiving patients from medical departments of the hospital or institution they work in, preparing them for the x-ray procedures by presenting the operation and ensuring that they don't have any metal, which is radioactive and very dangerous in such a procedure, and that they stay in the correct position. They then have to manipulate the radiologic equipment and place it in the right position over the body of the patient. An x-ray film is put beneath the patient and this will be later developed into a radiographic image. Other radiologic technologists work in imaging technologies, such as MRI's and CT's.
