As a critical member of the healthcare team, radio logic technologists utilizing various imaging technologies, acquire images of a patient’s body for radiologists who will then interpret the images. Radio logic technologists often specialize in a particular examination technique, such as mammography, CT, ultrasound, MRI, nuclear medicine, or cardiac and interventional imaging.
These professionals can also assist oncology teams in delivering radiation therapy to cancer patients. Most radio logic technologists are employed at hospitals, physicians’ offices and in medical and diagnostic laboratories.
Becoming a radio logic technologist typically requires an associate’s or bachelor’s degree. In addition to a degree, in most states, radio logic technologists must be licensed and/or certified to have careers in radiology. Ongoing continuing education credits are required to maintain both national and state certifications.
