Radiology is the field of Allied Health Sciences which uses X rays, gamma rays, and other forms of ionizing radiation in the treatment of diseases. In more recent years, radiology has come to embrace diagnosis by a method of organ scanning with the use of radioactive isotopes and nonionizing radiations, such as ultrasound and radiofrequency waves. Similarly, the scope of radiotherapy has extended to include, in the treatment of cancer, such agents as hormones and chemotherapeutic drugs.
The significance of Radiology can be understood from the disease management, with a wide choice of tools and techniques available for the detection, staging and treatment. Diagnostic imaging provides detailed information about structural or disease related changes. Early diagnosis saves lives. Without diagnosis there can be no treatment, there can be no cure.
With an immediate and sustainable demand for educated radiologic technologists in hospitals, clinics, and physicians’ offices, the field of radiography should continue to show higher than average job growth into the future. Job seekers can stand out in a growing field of qualified professionals by completing a four-year degree in radiology technology and by gaining as much hands-on experience as possible prior to their career in radiology.
