Radiological Technologist

Posted on December 5th, 2001 by

A health professional (not a physician) trained to properly position patients for x-rays, to load film and take images, and to develop and check the images for quality. Since mammograms are done on a machine that is used only for mammograms, the technologist must have special training in mammography. The films taken by the technologist are sent to a radiologist to be read.
