Radiologic Technology is the art and science of using radiation to provide images of bones, internal organs, soft tissue and vessels that comprise the human body. These images, that are digitally stored or displayed on a video monitor, are then used as a tool to diagnose disease, injury, or congenital deformity. Diagnosis and treatment of a patient depends on the accurate and precise production of a radiographic examination. The health professional responsible for performing radiographic examinations is the Radiologic Technologist (RT)
