Begin a Lucrative Career as an MRI Technician Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) produces x-rays that employ the administration of non-radioactive materials in patients. You will explain to the patient the procedure and position the patient in the appropriate angles in order to produce an accurate x-ray of the body part, so that the physician can make accurate diagnoses. You will use instruments to measure thickness of sections to be x-rayed, which will allow to you produce radiographs.
It is imperative that you follow the doctor's orders so that an x-ray of the appropriate area is taken and that strict adherence to regulations is followed in order to protect yourself, the patient, and surrounding individuals from radioactive exposure. Along with taking the x-ray, you will also remove and develop it.
Fluroscopies use a solution for patients to ingest in order to view the contrast in the body. A computed tomography (CT) produce cross-section x-rays of the body to get a three dimensional image. This process entails the use of ionizing radiation. An MRI creates multiple cross sections to create a three dimensional image that involve the use of non-ionizing radio frequency.
The job outlook for an MRI Technician is very good, because of the growing population of aging patients. So start working on becoming an MRI Technician and become a part of the booming medical industry.
