Radiology has been a distinct medical specialty with unique technical challenges from its inception. A radiology technician uses diagnostic imaging equipment to help physicians diagnose illnesses and injuries. He or she may use X-ray equipment, a sonography machine, computed tomography (CT Scan), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), or a mammography machine to perform these tests and scans.
Through the use of equipment, radiology technicians produce images of internal organs, bones, and other structures, for diagnostic and treatment purposes.
