Skills Requirements

radiology There are several skills that are required by a radiologic technician, they involve being detail oriented when entering medical information and scanning medical images to patient’s medical records, detail is very important, you must also be technologically advanced since most of diagnostic imaging has went to digital acquisition and then entering the patient and exam information to maintain proper patient history, having good communication skills are also significant when interacting with people in the X-ray department, most people you must communicate with are generally in high stress situations, being able to communicate and still provide a comfortable invite for them is vital especially when providing instructions on the exam and steps that the patient must take to safely complete the exam. Being a team player in the department, if your modality is not very busy and mammography is slammed aiding and dressing patients then giving instructions will allow your other co-workers to gain respect for you as well as return the favour to your department one day.
