At Navitas Healthcare our Radiology Technicians play a key role in helping to identify conditions such as cancer, ulcers, or broken bones by using state of the art technology equipment. Our Radiologic Technologists are the health care professionals who perform diagnostic imaging procedures, such as X-ray examinations, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and computed tomography (CT) scans. Some of them specialize in specific techniques such as cardiovascular-interventional radiography, mammography or sonography.
Our Radiologic Technologists are responsible for accurately positioning patients and ensuring that a quality diagnostic image is produced. They work closely with radiologists, the physicians who interpret medical images to either diagnose or rule out disease or injury. For the images to be interpreted correctly by the radiologist, the imaging examination must be performed properly by a radiologic technologist. We have seen an increased need for our Radiologic Technologists resources. This field is projected to grow 21 percent from 2012 to 2022, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As the population grows older, there will be an increase in medical conditions, such as breaks and fractures caused by osteoporosis, which can require imaging to diagnose them.
