Radiographer - Job Profile, Duties & Responsibilities

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

Who is a Diagnostic Radiographer? 

Diagnostic Radiographers assist in the diagnosis of injuries and diseases, and contribute towards establishing treatment plans. They are also involved in intervention procedures, such as the removal of kidney stones.

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.
