About Radiology

August 18th, 2017

Radiology technicians are allied healthcare workers. These highly trained professionals perform diagnostic imaging examinations at the request of physicians. Sometimes they also administer radiation therapy treatments. Radiology technicians have extensive knowledge of anatomy, examination techniques, and basic patient care as well as radiation safety and equipment protocols.
To work as a radiology technician you must complete a 2 or 4-year relevant educational program at an accredited institute and sit for a national certification exam. Advanced studies are required to specialize in specific imaging techniques. Continued education is necessary to keep up with advancements in diagnostic technology.
Be prepared for a rigor interview as employers are extremely careful when hiring radiology technicians. They will ask you questions to assess your theoretical knowledge and practical application of various diagnostic procedures. They will also want to test your communication skills and your interpersonal skills. A quick look through mock interview questions for radiology technicians will help you to be better prepared for any questions that come your way at the interview.
