Radiographers take X-rays and apply radioactive substances to specific parts of the patients’ bodies for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. They identify abnormalities within the body to assist doctors in making a correct diagnosis.
There are four categories of Radiography:
Diagnostic - capturing X-ray images of the human body on film using X-ray equipment.
Therapeutic - localise, plan and administer radiation in cancer treatment.
Ultrasound - produces images of the human body using equipment which generates high-frequency sound waves.
Nuclear medicine - prepares and utilises radioactive pharmaceuticals to capture diagnostic images of anatomy and physiology of the patient.
