National Radiologic Technology Week® November 3-9, 2019

An instructor and four students working in a radiography class.Providing patients with safe medical imaging examinations and radiation therapy treatments is the prime goal for the nation’s radiologic technologists. To recognize the vital work of its student R.T.s, and to celebrate their growth and accomplishments in the program, the Sandhills Community College Radiography Program faculty is celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week® by hosting celebratory activities all week long.  

NRTW was created by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists in 1979. The event is celebrated each year during the week of November 8, the day that German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 1895. 

Medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals work with some of the most innovative equipment in the medical field to help identify pathologies, plan and administer treatment and restore patient health. R.T.s can specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy, and general diagnostic radiology. 

For more information about the important role medical imaging professionals play inpatient care, or to explore a career in Radiography, please contact Radiography faculty members Robin Garner or Janna May.
