Radiologic Technologists, or radiographers, are certified and/or licensed to use X-rays and other forms of radiation to produce images of patients’ body parts and organs. Such images are helpful to physicians in their diagnoses of illness and injury.
Radiographers are typically employed by hospitals, private physicians, and public health departments. They may also work as technical advisors or as representatives for firms that manufacture radiologic equipment. Others become faculty members in hospital or community college programs of radiologic technology.
