HRMC Celebrates National Radiologic Technologists Week
November 13, 2015
HURON, S.D. – Providing patients with safe medical imaging examinations is the prime goal for the nation’s radiologic technologists. To recognize the vital work of its R.T.s, Huron Regional Medical is celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week®, Nov. 8-14, 2015
The commemorative week was created by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists in 1979 to be celebrated each year during the week of Nov. 8, the day that German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 1895.
To celebrate, HRMC medical imaging staff hosted a hospital-wide celebration complete with cupcakes, apple cider and a contest inviting coworkers to guess the number of candy bones in the enema bag to win candy and a gift certificate.
Medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals work with some of the most innovative equipment in the medical field to help identify pathologies, plan and administer treatment and restore patient health. R.T.s specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy and general diagnostic radiology.
