Imaging Technologist

The imaging technologist represents a healthcare professional trained to perform specific types of diagnostic imaging evaluations such as X-rays, computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and ultrasound (US) studies. Technologists are skilled in the operation of sophisticated imaging devices to acquire patient data and to create diagnostic images which are interpreted by radiologists.

The results of diagnostic imaging studies are shared with referring physicians for the purpose of diagnosis, treatment planning, and outcome measures. Imaging technologists play an important role on the spinecare team.
