Echo Ultrasound Jobs
Also known as an echocardiogram, this is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves to produce an image of the heart. The sound waves are sent through a device called a transducer and are reflected off the various structures of the heart. These echoes are converted into pictures of the heart that can be seen on a video monitor.
General Radiography or X-Ray Jobs
These professionals work in the radiography - or x-ray - department of a hospital, clinic or physician's office. Depending on their level of certification, technicians may position body parts in preparation for x-rays, take x-rays, perform electrocardiograms, venipuncture, routine lab tests, injects, x-ray-film processing and more.
General Ultrasound Jobs
Uses high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. Ultrasounds are used to view internal organs as they function, and to assess blood flow through various vessels. Ultrasound procedures are often used to examine many parts of the body such as the abdomen, breasts, female pelvis, prostate, scrotum, thyroid and parathyroid, and the vascular system. During pregnancy, ultrasounds are performed to evaluate the development of the fetus.
CT - Radiology Computed Tomography (CT or CAT) Scan Jobs
A CT or CAT scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of x-rays and computer technology to produce cross-sectional images (often called slices), both horizontally and vertically, of the body. A CT scan shows detailed images of any part of the body, including the bones, muscles, fat and organs. CT scans are more detailed than general x-rays. CT scans also minimize exposure to radiation.
A mammogram is an x-ray examination of the breast. It is used to detect and diagnose breast disease in women who either have breast problems such as a lump, pain or nipple discharge, as well as for women who have no breast complaints.
MRI - Magnetic Resonance Imaging Jobs
MMRI is a diagnostic procedure that uses a combination of a large magnet, radiofrequencies and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and structures within the body. An MRI is often used for the following:
- To examine the heart, brain, liver, pancreas, male and female reproductive organs and other soft tissues
- To assess blood flow
- To detect tumors and diagnose many forms of cancer
- To evaluate infections
- To assess injuries to bones and joints
Nuclear Medicine Jobs
Nuclear medicine is a specialized area of radiology that uses very small amounts of radioactive materials, or radiopharmaceuticals, to examine organ function and structure. Nuclear-medicine imaging is a combination of many different disciplines, including chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology and medicine. This branch of radiology is often used to help diagnose and treat abnormalities very early in the progression of a disease, such as thyroid cancer.
Special Procedures Jobs
Specializes in non-surgical one-day procedures, including but not limited to chemotherapy, phlebotomy, pre- and post-x-ray procedures and blood transfusions.
Vascular Ultrasound Jobs
Using ultrasound instrumentation, these professionals assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of disorders affecting the vascular system and its function (excluding the heart), including detection of blood clots.
Certified Respiratory Therapist - CRT
A specially trained healthcare professional who helps provide respiratory care for patients with heart and lung disorders. A CRT often assesses and treats patients with the following conditions:
- Tracheostomy tubes (a special type of breathing tube for patients unable to breathe through their mouth and nose) and oxygen therapy
- Ventilators (machines that breathe for patients with certain conditions, such as spinal cord injuries, who are unable to breathe on their own)
- Chronic heart or lung problems that require breathing treatments and assistance
Respiratory therapists obtain their CRT after passing a national exam.
Registered Respiratory Therapist - RRT
A CRT (see above) who takes two more exams receives his or her Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential.
Speech-language pathologists specialize in evaluating and treating people with communication problems that result from disability, surgery or developmental disorders.

Monitors patients while they are asleep and records brain activity. They use this information to assist with sleep disorders such as insomnia, sleep apnea and narcolepsy.
Medical scientist who specializes in histology - the science of identifying the structure of cells, tissues and organs in relation to their function. A microscope is used to make the identification of the structure of cells, tissues and organs. The main use of histology in medicine is to identify the type of disease present in patients. A histologist is able to identify abnormal cells that represent disease because he/she is familiar with how normal and abnormal cells should appear under a microscope.
Medical Laboratory Technologist

Draws and collects blood samples from patients, verifies records and prepares specimens for laboratory analysis. May prick finger to draw blood. May conduct interviews, take vital signs and draw and test blood samples to screen donors at blood bank.
These professionals are specialists in cytology, the study of cells, also known as a cytotechnologists. Skilled cytotechnologists examine human cell samples under the microscope, looking for early signs of cancer and other diseases. They trace the clues to disease in the cytoplasm and nucleus of cells that have been stained with special dyes. With expert eyes, they look for the smallest abnormalities in color, shape and size that can betray the presence of disease.
Medical Dosimetry Jobs
Relates to the measurement of doses. The medical dosimetrist maintains a delicate balance between delivering the prescription the physician has written while ensuring that the patient will not lose important healthy organ function.
Radiation Therapy Jobs
Radiation therapists use high-energy rays to kill or shrink cancer cells and to decrease their ability to divide. Radiation is often used to treat prostate cancer that is still confined to the prostate gland, or has spread only to nearby tissue. If the disease is advanced, radiation may be used to reduce the size of the tumor and to provide relief from symptoms.
Medical Physicist Jobs
Ensures the quality of care in the use of radiation-producing sources and imaging equipment and the protection of patients and staff from radiation.
