About B.Sc. Imaging Technology

Radiology is a branch of medicine that uses imaging technology to diagnose and treat disease within the body. It deals with the study and application of imaging technology like x-ray and radiation to diagnose and treat diseases. Radiologists direct an array of imaging technologies (such as ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), nuclear medicine, positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)) to diagnose or treat disease.

Diagnostic radiographers use X-ray, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, computerized tomography (CT), mammography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear medicine and angiography, to produce images of organs and other body parts.

Radiographers perform X-ray examinations on patients in a variety of clinical settings. These examinations can vary from a simple hand X-ray to an examination of the kidneys after contrast media is injected.

Radiographers work in outpatient clinical settings, perform complex procedures in surgery, and work in hospitals performing examinations on patients of all ages.

The Diagnostic Radiographer is required to use clinical reasoning skills in making decisions regarding the nature and extent of individual procedures.

B.Sc. Imaging Technology specialists are trained to recognize the normal and abnormal appearances of anatomy and pathology in order to initiate supplementary techniques to assist the health practitioner reach a definitive diagnosis and provide when requested an informed opinion to the referring health practitioner regarding the results of procedures, which assists the health practitioner in arriving at a correct diagnosis.

The diagnostic radiographer is responsible for the comfort and well-being of patients whilst they are in their care.

Diagnostic radiographers also have the opportunity to specialize in an imaging modality such as ultrasound, CT, MRI, etc.

Diagnostic radiographers provide a service for most departments of a hospital, including accident and emergency, outpatients clinics, operating theatres, intensive care units, and general wards.

In India diploma, degree and postgraduate courses are there in this field. Also students can under go specialization in a particular diagnostic radiography field.

Students can even approach the distance educational institutes in India and abroad for this discipline.

Imaging Technology are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care. B.Sc. Imaging Technology specialists may specialize in a specific imaging technique such as bone densitometry, cardiovascular-interventional radiography, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, quality management, sonography or general radiography. The radiologic technologists who specialize in radiation therapy, which is the delivery of high doses of radiation to treat cancer and other diseases, are radiation therapists and medical dosimetrists.
