The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists (OSRT) represents medical imaging personnel throughout Ohio, advocates for disciplines within the practice and promotes quality patient care.
Radiologic technologists are health care/medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging procedures and administer radiation therapy treatments. They are educated and certified in the disciplines in which they work. In diagnostic medical imaging, disciplines include specialized work in a specific imaging discipline, such as bone densitometry, cardiovascular-interventional radiography, computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, quality management, sonography or general radiography. Radiologic technologists who specialize in radiation therapy are part of the radiation oncology team and are called radiation therapists. In collaboration with a radiation oncologist (physician), radiation therapists apply therapeutic doses of radiation to treat cancer and other diseases. Some therapists advance their certifications in treatment planning and are known as medical dosimetrists.
