Radiologic Technologists use x-ray machines, ultrasound machines, magnetic resonance scanners, positron emission scanners, and other technologically advanced machines to help diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries under the direction of a physician. They are responsible for explaining and getting patients ready for radiological tests and treatment that will be performed. They place the equipment at the right distance and right angle from the patient to make the appropriate images for the physician. Radiographers also assist physicians in performing sophisticated procedures. It is their responsibility to ensure that the radiology equipment is properly maintained. They work in hospitals, clinics, medical laboratories, nursing homes, and in private industry.
