The main job function of an x-ray tech is to use different imaging methods to visualize the inside of the human body. The x-ray images allow physicians to diagnose and treat illnesses or injuries with a high degree of accuracy. Have you ever had a broken ankle from playing a sport, and had to visit a doctor to get diagnosed? Well the doctor will refer you to a radiology office or hospital to get x-rays. The x-ray tech will be the one to take pictures of your ankle to help the orthopedist diagnose the type of treatment needed to heal your ankle.
As always, it’s imperative that x-ray techs take the proper precautions during their shifts. They must protect vital organs when taking the pictures. The last thing you need is to be exposed to unnecessary radiation during your job. You must adhere to proper safety precautions and wear the required protective gear.
The x-ray techs job duties might include preparing patients for radiological exams, operating and maintaining radiological equipment, developing and interpreting radiological images, and organizing medical date for review and interpretation.
