Do have something to say about the future development and delivery of Diagnostic Radiography?
Diagnostic radiographers use x-ray machines, ultrasound machines and other imaging technology and techniques to work out what disease or condition is causing a patient’s illness. Examples include:
- Looking through tissues with x-rays to examine bones, cavities and foreign objects.
- Viewing real time images of the digestive system using fluoroscopy.
- Creating cross-section images of the body using computed tomography (CT) scanning.
- Building 2D or 3D maps of different body tissue types using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
- Checking circulation and examining the heart using ultrasound scanning.
- Investigating blood vessels using angiography.
Diagnostic radiographers can contribute towards establishing treatment plans and may also be involved in intervention procedures, for example, the removal of kidney stones.
