Radiologic technologists may specialize in such fields as:
- Computer tomography (CT) scans, which produce cross-sectional images of the body with the use of X-rays.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which provides diagnostic information about physiological conditions as well as the anatomical structure of the body’s tissue without the use of X-radiation.
- Cardiac-Interventional and Vascular-Interventional radiography, which uses catheter or needle techniques to diagnose and treat disease.
- Mammography, the specialized radiographic examination of the mammary glands to detect early breast cancers before they spread.
Radiologic technologists are employed primarily by hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers.
