What’s it like to be a Medical Imaging Technologist?
Medical imaging technologists operate X-ray and other imaging equipment, such
as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, to produce radiographic
images that are used in the diagnosis and subsequent management of disease or
Medical imaging technologists who are employed in hospitals may work in the
radiology department, use mobile X-ray units at patients’ bedsides or work in
an operating theatre. They work as part of a team with other healthcare
professionals, medical staff and nursing staff. Hours of work may involve
weekend or shiftwork. Participation in an on-call roster for after-hours
emergencies may also be required.

unsafe or the job difficult to undertake, e.g. draftsperson working with
detailed drawings; checkout operator reading dockets; work requiring good
hand-eye co-ordination for working with precision or semi-precision tools.
Mainly indoor work
Workers performing these jobs would usually be expected to spend more than
three-quarters of their day indoors, in an office, factory or other enclosed

Duties and tasks of a Medical Imaging Technologist
Medical imaging technologists may perform the following tasks:
- receive and interpret requests from medical practitioners for X-ray examinations to be performed on patients
- determine the appropriate imaging techniques to provide doctors with diagnostic information
- calculate details of procedures (such as length and intensity of exposure to radiation) and settings of recording equipment
- explain procedures to patients and address any concerns they have about radiation processes
- ensure patients undergo the correct preparation for the procedure
- correctly position the patient and imaging equipment to obtain the best image of the area being examined
- ensure the patient’s welfare during the examination, particularly their exposure to radiation
- develop the X-ray films
- inspect images to determine if any further views are necessary
- operate special equipment such as fluoroscopy equipment (which gives a moving image of the part being examined), angiography equipment (which gives images of blood vessels) and computed tomography (CT) equipment (which gives cross-sectional images of the body).
Experienced medical imaging technologists may be able to develop further
skills in image interpretation.
A sonographer operates ultrasound machines and related equipment to produce
images for medical diagnostic purposes.
A MRI radiographer operates MRI scanners and ensures patient safety during the
procedure to produce detailed images.
