Program Overview

Radiological technologists are experts in the use of electromagnetic radiation, such as X-rays, for the diagnosis of injury and disease. Radiography is offered in collaboration with the Saint John Regional Hospital and The Moncton Hospital.

Benefit from the work
Radiological technologists are experts in the use of electromagnetic radiation, such as X-rays, for the diagnosis of injury and disease. Just about every Canadian will benefit from the work and care of a radiological technologist at some point in their lives - whether it's for a sprain, broken ankle or an annual preventative care mammogram.

Radiological technologists use a variety of technologies such as:

  • Radiography, the commonly used X-ray for the chest, bones, joints, spine and gastrointestinal system
  • Mammography, for early detection of breast cancer
  • Bone Mineral Densitometry for detection and follow up of osteoporosis
  • Angiography, to examine the heart and vascular (veins and arteries) system
  • Fluroscopy, real-time, moving images of internal structures
  • Computed Tomography (CT) scanning used to obtain crosssectional virtual slices through anatomical structures and to create 3-dimensional reconstructions

Radiological technologists work directly with patients, providing a combination of technological expertise and personal one-on-one care. as a registered radiological technologist, you will:

  • Assess a patient’s condition and obtain clinical history
  • Determine technical parameters for production of images
  • Conduct examinations within a hospital’s diagnostic imaging department, operating room, trauma room and critical care units
  • Analyze images
  • Collaborate with the medical team, including radiologists
  • Provide education and information to the patient and their family
