Job Description for X-Ray Technician (Limited Scope)
An X-ray technician (also known as a radiologic technician or radiographer) performs imaging of the human body used for the diagnosis and treatment of medical problems. An X-ray technician normally assists the radiologist or primary care physician during the course of treatment and may interact with the patient. However, the technician generally does not read and interpret the X-ray for diagnosis purposes, as that function is reserved for the radiologist or primary care physician. An X-ray technician works closely with other professionals in the healthcare setting and is an integral position to properly diagnosis and care for patients. The X-ray technician must have good interpersonal skills, as they must be able to explain procedures related to X-ray imaging to patients as they occur.
