Best Radiologic Technology Schools in the Philippines

X-rays allow doctors to view the insides of a person’s chest. X-rays also make it possible to see cracks in the skull of a person who figured in an accident. Ultrasound gives expectant mothers an opportunity to see their unborn child inside their wombs.

Xrays, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and similar imaging technologies allow us to access information which we could not easily access otherwise and to operate these, we’ll need Radiologic Technologists.

Radiologic Technologist

In the Philippines, radiologic technologists have to be capable of the following tasks, among others:

  • Determining the proper radiography techniques to use on a patient based on observations and their needs;
  • Producing useful images through various radiographic examinations;
  • Gathering useful data from the produced images;
  • Monitoring both the people and the equipment involved in the job

These responsibilities make radiologic technologists an indispensable asset in any medical function.

The Licensed Radiologic Technologist Exam is conducted in July of every year.
