Calling All Radiographers!
What Does a Mobile Radiographer Do?
Radiographers are health care professionals who operate diagnostic imaging machines, like CT or MRI scanners.
Radiographers work with Radiologists, who interpret their scans and decide on a diagnosis for the patient. They can work in areas like surgery, the emergency room, cardiac care, intensive care, and patient rooms.
In recent years, the option for mobile radiography has grown. Radiographers work in shifts, travelling up and down the country in mobile units. They either operate privately, or are loaned out to hospitals with less advanced facilities and fewer staff members to operate it.
Radiographer job responsibilities include:
- Helping oncologists with radiation treatment for cancer patients
- Preparing patients for radiologic procedures
- Maintaining imaging equipment
- Ensuring that safety protocols are being followed
- Helping surgeons, such as with imaging during complicated procedures
