Specially trained, but not medically qualified, professionals who work in multi-disciplinary teams led by radiologists. They mainly work in hospitals as:
• Diagnostic radiographers – carrying out a range of procedures such as using X-rays, computed axial tomography (CAT) scans, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
• Therapeutic radiographers – administering radiation treatment to patients as prescribed by the doctor.
Training as a radiographer usually involves three years of full-time study at degree level.
