November 5-11, 2017 is National Radiologic Technology Week, which celebrates the vital work of radiologic technologists across the nation. The celebration takes place each November to commemorate the anniversary of the x-ray's discovery on November 8, 1895 by German physicist, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen.
The week-long celebration places emphasis on the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety.
Radiologic technologists specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy and general diagnostic radiology.
Kaleida Health would like to thank our medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals for their commitment to excellence.
