Radio Technician

[td_block_text_with_title custom_title=”SUMMARY” header_color=”#e88f1b” separator=”” tdc_css=””]Radio technicians are a group of allied medicine professionals who are trained to use medical imaging techniques, such as x-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and ultrasound for creating images of a patient’s internal anatomy to diagnose injury or disease. Imaging techniques involve the use of radiation, hence it is very important to have adequate training and understanding of radiation safety and protection.[/td_block_text_with_title][td_block_text_with_title custom_title=”WHAT ALL CAN I DO?” header_color=”#e88f1b”][/td_block_text_with_title]

Nuclear Medicine Technologist

They are a type of radiology technician that performs imaging tests using special scanners and cameras, along with compounded radioactive substances called radiopharmaceuticals. They assist physicians in diagnosing and treating disease in patients.


It is an advanced radiologic imaging technique that utilizes low-energy X-rays to produce images of breast tissue for screening and diagnostic purposes. Mammographer play a very important role in early detection of breast cancer and finding other breast abnormalities.

CT Technologist

A CT scan technologist, specialize in the particular modality of computed tomography (CT). It utilizes computer processed X-rays to produce three-dimensional images of different areas of the body such as the head, or abdomen.

MRI Technician

An MRI technician or technologist is a category of radiology technician that specializes in the modality of magnetic resonance imaging. MRI helps physicians diagnose abnormalities in patients using a powerful magnetic field. It produces detailed images of organs, soft tissue, and bones.
