  • MEDICAL IMAGING 3 RD FLOOR CARDINAL CARTERMRT WeekThe Power of Technology with a Human Touch
  • WHAT IS A MRT? MEDICAL RADIATION TECHNOLOGIST/THERAPISTX-RAY☢ NUCLEAR MEDICINE☢ULTRASOUND ☢ RADIATION THERAPY ☢ MRI
  • Medical radiation technology is ademanding and sophisticatedprofession. Ongoing advancements in technology, procedures and patient care make it one of the most rapidly evolving health care professions.
  • Five Modalities are grouped under the Medial Radiation Technology Family:
  • Five Modalities are grouped under the Medial Radiation Technology Family:Nuclear MedicineRadiation TherapyMagnetic ResonanceUltrasoundRadiological Technology
  • Nuclear Medicine TechnologistAcquire images using radiopharmaceuticals that helppinpoint the nature of a disease and how it is affectingthe body. Their work also enables doctors to monitor apatients response to treatment.Some of the main uses of nuclear medicine include: •Evaluating coronary disease •Studying how the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys and other organs are functioning •Determining the location of tumours •Monitoring the progression of cancer and the results of cancer treatments •Diagnosing hormonal disorders
  • Nuclear Medicine Images Images...
  • Radiation TherapistAre an integral part of the treatment planning aspects ofcancer therapy involving radiation. Planing and deliveringradiation treatments prescribed by a physicianspecializing in cancer treatment (radiation oncologist). Other major responsibilities include: • performing treatment simulations • taking measurements • constructing and fitting accessory devices • determining radiation doses
  • Magnetic Resonance TechnologistProduces images with excellent soft tissuediscrimination using magnetic fields andradiofrequency pulses to aid in diagnosisof disease. MRI is the fastest growing imaging modality that is replacing many invasive procedures in today’s health care environment

  • Ultrasound TechnologistAlso called medical sonographers, operateequipment that generates cross-sectional imagesfrom sound waves that are transmitted to andreflected back from organs and tissues within thebody. Through these returned echoes images arecreated. The ultrasound helps physicians to safely monitor pregnancies and diagnose cardiac, ophthalmic, vascular and many other medical disorders without the use of radiation.

  • Radiological TechnologistMake up about 80% of the 10,000 members representedby the Canadian Association of Medical RadiationTechnologists (CAMRT).At a physicians request, the technologist produces imagesof a body part or system using equipment that emits x-rays.The radiologist - a doctor who specializes in interpreting x-rays - studies the images and dispenses advice that willhelp the treating physician make a diagnosis and prescribean appropriate course of treatment to the patient.
  • Radiological TechnologistThe profession of radiological technologist involves abroad variety of procedures and covers a number ofspecialties, including:•Plain film radiological technology, i.e., x-rays of the chest, bones, joints, gastrointestinal studies, spine•Mammography to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages•Angiography to examine the heart, blood vessels and blood flow•Fluoroscopy, i.e., real-time images that show movement•Computerized tomography (CT scans), i.e., detailed cross-sectional images of the body
  • Plain Film Radiography How X-Rays were performed before advanced computers X-RAY IMAGES OF THE NECK
