Pre-Medical Radiography

Radiographers work in the world of medical (radiographic) imaging. They are involved in procedures like x-rays, MRIs, CT or PET scans and mammograms. They must have the training to operate very advanced medical equipment and understand the safe use of radiation and radiopharmaceuticals for both diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.  Radiographers support radiologists and physicians, and may work in clinics, physician offices, hospitals, emergency facilities, or for dedicated imaging centers or mobile imaging providers.
