Diagnosing certain medical conditions or injuries often requires physicians to go beyond a routine physical examination; they need to see inside the body, so an x-ray of the affected area is ordered. Radiographers work with patients to acquire the necessary diagnostic images. If you’re detail-oriented, caring, interested in anatomy and physiology, able to work under pressure, and inclined to work with technology and people, a career as a radiographer may be a satisfying choice for you.
The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) promotes excellence in education and elevates quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography.
