Advantages of Intraoperative Radiation Therapy for Breast Cancer Treatment.
If you're looking for a medical career in which no two days are ever the same, radiologic technology might be the best choice for you. Radiologic technologists are vital in nearly every aspect of medicine.
With an associate’s degree and just two years of specialized training at St Mary's Health, you can land an in-demand, well-paying allied health career as a radiologic technologist—performing dynamic. real-time, “movie-like” X-rays during fluoroscopic studies, working in the operating room, imaging patients with traumatic injuries, and everything between.
The experience you’ll get here is unmatched in the Mid-Atlantic. St Mary's Washington Hospital Center is a major referral center for treating the most complex cases. Our St Mary's Heart and Vascular Institute is nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report and we are the region’s designated Adult Burn Center.
As an academic medical center, we invest in our students’ education—you will have access to the latest radiologic technology, including a natural bone, full-body X-ray phantom that we couldn’t be more excited about!
Rad tech is a growing, in-demand field—but it’s not for everyone. This branch of medicine is a delicate balance of empathy, artistry, and scientific skill. You can’t be squeamish—you’ll be at patients’ bedside in the emergency room and making critical decisions to get the diagnostic information clinicians need to appropriately treat patients. More than anything, you must have a strong desire to help people.
