Date:11/3/2009

Improving Health Care During the American Society of Radiologic Technologists' National Radiologic Technology Week and All Year Long

Albuquerque, NM (Vocus) November 3, 2009 -- Medical imaging exams are critical to diagnosis and treatment of many conditions, but how safe are they? Radiologic technologists, the skilled professionals who perform imaging exams, want to help you make sure you get the best and safest imaging possible.

It’s all part of National Radiologic Technology Week®, Nov. 8-14. The week recognizes and honors the radiologic technology personnel who provide medical imaging and radiation therapy treatments. NRTW marks the anniversary of Wilhelm Roentgen’s discovery of the x-ray on Nov. 8, 1895.

“As radiologic technologists, our ultimate goal is to use our knowledge, skills and education to improve health care and provide patients with outstanding care,” said Sal Martino, Ed.D., R.T.(R), FASRT, CAE, ASRT chief executive officer. As a registered radiologic technologist, Dr. Martino understands the importance of top-notch patient care. “Radiologic technologists realize that they are the conduit between the patient and the procedure, so they are in a unique position to help patients before, during and after exams.”

To promote the importance of improving health care for patients, the ASRT is providing x-ray safety tips for every American during NRTW. The ASRT’s goal is to empower patients with the knowledge they need to understand what to look for during exams, which will help increase safety measures and ultimately improve patient care.

Here are ASRT’s eight great tips for x-ray exams:

1.   Tell your doctor or radiologic technologist if you are pregnant. Many types of x-ray examinations can be performed safely on pregnant women, but the benefits of the exam must be weighed agains
