CT Technologist Duties
As a CT technologist, you play a very special role in the smooth functioning of the radiologic department of the hospital or health facility. Your skills are valued, and you can be expected to work in a team of physicians and technicians on a daily basis, while flexing your skills and performing necessary tests to ensure patient treatment and health. Some of the primary requirements of a CT technologist include taking x-ray images of tissue, bones, blood and organs, as well as processing these images with a team in order to create accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. A CT technologist uses computed tomography to locate specific areas inside the body that need proper assessment and diagnosis. The CT technologist helps take cross-sectional images through x-rays that may not be able to be seen on MRIs or other types of medical equipment.
