Texas Orthopedics would like to take a moment to give a big shout-out to our amazing group of RTs, radiologic technologists.
November 6-12 marks National Radiologic Technology Week. It is organized each year by the ASRT (American Society of Radiologic Technologists) to recognize the important work done by our medical/diagnostic imaging and radiation therapy professionals. No doctor’s office, emergency room, or hospital would be complete without them.
This week is celebrated each November in honor of the date Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray on November 8, 1895.
Our expert RTs at Texas Orthopedics skillfully handle everything from x-rays, to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRIs),and bone density exams. They are schooled in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection, and basic patient care…and they are such a key component of our practice!
