DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

• X-ray technicians, also known as radiologic technologists, are medical support professionals who specialize in the operation of x-ray equipment.
• Before a procedure, x-ray technicians meet with the patient to discuss their medical history and answer any questions they might have.
• Then, they position the patient and the equipment in a way that protects patient safety, and they take images of all parts of the body that the doctor requested. Afterward, technicians may discuss the images with the ordering physician to determine if they are clear enough, or if more images are necessary for the doctor to make a diagnosis and/or develop a treatment plan for the patient. Between procedures, technicians maintain x-ray equipment to ensure that it is in good working order.
• As an x-ray technician, you receive instructions from doctors regarding the x-rays patients require.
• You are responsible for getting clear imaging results, which requires proper use of the equipment and keeping patients calm and informed throughout the x-ray procedure.
• If a patient has any questions or concerns about the procedure, you can provide answers and assistance.
• You must comply with the safety regulations involving the use of radiation to protect yourself, patients and other staff members from over-exposure to radiation.
• To lessen radiation risks, you will use a technique called patient-shielding, which involves placing lead shields or aprons on parts of a patient's body that aren't being photographed.
• Alternatively, you may adjust x-ray beams so they cover a limited area.
• You must also position the radiographic machinery so it is at a proper distance, angle and height from the patient.
• Other duties include keeping equipment in good working order, maintaining patient records and developing exposed radiographs.
• You may use portable x-ray equipment to conduct x-rays in patients' hospital rooms. Some x-ray technicians specialize in areas such as computed tomography (CT) scanning, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and mammography.
