Radiologic Technology

What is Radiologic Technology?

Radiologic Technology (XR) is an allied health field which utilizes electromagnetic energy to identify an abnormal condition as well as to rule out the existence of a disease. The radiologic technologist RT(R) works under the direction of the radiologist, a medical physician. As a member of the medical team, a radiologic technologist requires education not only in using equipment and applying the specialized techniques of radiology, but also in human anatomy, physiology, medical terminology, and disease conditions.
