Radiography is the use of certain types of electromagnetic radiation to view objects. Radiography is the science of imaging human anatomy. Although many of the methods and techniques developed over a century ago remain in use, computers are slowly becoming a part of radiographic inspection. Radiography as a profession calls for considerable technological expertise. Radiographers work as part of the healthcare team in many areas of a hospital including the Diagnostic imaging Departments, Accident & Emergency, Intensive Care Unit and Operation Theatre. Radiographers are responsible for producing high quality images to assist in the diagnosis of disease and injury.
The role of a Radiographer is constantly developing and expanding into new areas of responsibility. A radiographer could undertake postgraduate studies and become a clinical specialist, or go on to do research and clinical trials, tele-radiology, tele-medicine or gain further qualifications such as a master’s degree of PhD, and take up teaching in specialized fields. Employment prospects for radiographers are good, both within the country as well as internationality. In India with the healthcare industry booming, radiographers are constantly in demand in nursing homes, hospitals, diagnostic centers as well as super specialty hospitals. Employment opportunities abound overseas as well.
Radiography involves the scanning and development of the images for the purpose of diagnosis of diseases and injuries. This branch of diagnostics involves various technologies and specific procedures such as X-ray imaging, computed tomography (CT), ultrasound, positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) etc. The field also involves minimally invasive treatment courses, that cover the use of various procedures and electromagnetic devices for diagnosis as well as treatment.
The undergraduate courses one can obtain in this field are BSc radiology, BSc MIT course. The course taken up can also be a combination of the two specifications i.e. bachelor of radiology and imaging technology. The field of radiology has specific sub-streams such as diagnostic radiology, interventional radiology that can be gained post completing the graduation course of BSc MIT or BSc medical imaging technology. While the diagnostic stream focuses on recognition of the problem through imaging, the interventional aspect deals with procedure procedures that ensure treatment course through a minimum amount of invasion, as opposed to surgical options. With constant medical and technological advancements, it becomes quite necessary to ensure students are kept abreast with the latest innovation and technology involved in their course as well a further career.
