Imaging Sciences - Radiography (X-Ray)

When doctors need to diagnose an illness, they often turn to advanced medical imaging technologies to provide them with an inside view of a patient’s body. Radiologic technologists utilize specialized equipment to obtain diagnostic images and information to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
