Title: SCHOOL OF RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY


1
HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL
SCHOOL OF RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY
2
HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL
The place where it all began.
3
WHERE HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL IS TODAY
  • A state-of-the-art facility

4
History of Radiology
  • Wilhelm Roentgen discovered X-rays in 1895.
  • First X-ray was of his wifes hand which was on a
    piece of glass.
  • X-rays were used for entertainment checked for
    foot sizes, used at circuses, bone portraits,
    home models were even sold for parties.
  • In the beginning, there were a lot of safety
    issues due to the unknown hazards of radiation
    exposure.

5
WHAT DOES AN X-RAY TECHNOLOGIST DO?
  • Patient care dealing with patients in various
    states of health
  • Position patient correctly so desired anatomy is
    visualized
  • Radiation protection time, distance, shielding
  • Live X-ray exams Fluoroscopy (X-ray video)
  • Responsible for cleaning and stocking all X-ray
    exam rooms
  • Obtaining and documenting patient history

6
MODALITIES
  • Diagnostic (basic, regular X-ray exams)
  • CAT Scan
  • MRI
  • Mammography
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • Angiography
  • Cath Lab

7
PURPOSE OF MEDICAL X-RAYS
  • Diagnose fractures and pathology
  • Fluoroscopy diagnoses pathology

8
TYPES OF PATIENTS
  • Outpatients mostly ambulatory sometimes
    immobile, various ages
  • Inpatients various ages and conditions, some
    ambulatory, most bedridden, some unconscious,
    pre/post surgical

9
WHERE CAN YOU WORK?
  • Hospitals
  • Outpatient facilities
  • Doctors offices
  • Mobile radiography
  • Travel tech agency

10
HOW MUCH MONEY WILL YOU MAKE?
  • Varies on location, experience and facility
  • Average starting salary is 40,000 to 50,000

The following radiographs show normal lumbar
spine anatomy.
  • Progressing caudally, the vertebral bodies
    increase in stature. The disc spaces also
    increase in size until L5-S1, which is often
    smaller than L4-L5.
  • Like the thoracic spine, the vertebral bodies
    should have smooth alignment and continuous
    sclerotic margins

28
ROUTINES ROTATION
During your first year as a student at Holy Cross
Hospital, you will rotate through a month of
routine diagnositic X-ray. Each day you will be
assigned to assist a technologist in performing
various exams.
29
EMERGENCY CENTER AND EXPRESS CARE ROTATION
Both juniors and seniors will spend one month
each year in the Emergency Center. There, the
student will be exposed to a fast-paced and
demanding facet of radiology.
30
PAIN MANAGEMENT ROTATION
Separate from Medical Imaging, Pain Management is
a department of its own. Here students learn to
operate a C-arm during epidural steriod
injections.
31
FLUOROSCOPY ROTATION
Fluoro is a branch of diagnostic radiology.
Fluoro exams include barium enemas, small bowel
follow throughs, upper GIs, esphograms and other
like studies requiring contrasting agents.
32
IVP/ROOM 2/ERCP ROTATION
IVP or intraveinous pyelogram are studies of the
kidneys often using a tomography unit. ERCPs are
studies using small cameras inserted into the
body and are most often done in room 2.
33
MODALITIES ROTATION
  • Students will learn the protocol for performing
    exams in the following areas
  • Ultrasound
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • MRI
  • Mammography

34
SURGERY OR OPERATING ROOM ROTATION
During this rotation, the student will be exposed
to exams done in the operating room either
during, after or prior to a surgery. Exams
performed in this rotation are done using a
portable C-arm.
35
PORTABLES ROTATION
Portable or bedside radiography is a form of
mobile imaging done by our department. These
portable X-ray machines are equipped to image
unstable patients not capable of traveling to the
department.
36
SPECIALIZED SENIOR-YEAR ROTATIONS
  • Computer Aided Tomography (CAT)
  • Angiography
  • Cardiac Catheterization Lab
  • Radiologist
  • Evenings
  • Weekends

37
COMPUTER-ASSISTED TOMOGRAPHY
CAT scan is another modality in which the machine
cuts the body into image slices to better view
the internal organs of the body. Here the student
will learn the equipment and protocol for
performing CAT scans.
38
CT Image - Abdomen/Chest
39
ANGIOGRAPHY
Angiography is a modality that specializes in the
imaging of the vessels in the body. Images are
produced through the use of a C-arm much like
the one used in the OR and EPIs.
40
CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION LAB
In this modality, the student learns the
importance of the studies done in the Cath Lab.
Specialized images of the heart, great vessels
and placement of cardiac aids are produced here.
41
RADIOLOGIST ROTATION
This rotation takes place in the radiology
reading room. Each day, the student is assigned
to a Radiologist to observe the reading of films.
The student learns what the doctor is looking for
in each particular study.
42
EVENING ROTATION
This rotation is done during your senior year. It
gives the student another perspective on
diagnostic radiology outside of the normal
daytime shift.
43
WEEKEND ROTATION
This rotation also is done only during your
senior year. It allows the student to see how
weekends differ from weekday shifts.
