Radiology Training For Technicians And Technologists
Radiology training is a process of acquiring skills and degrees needed to become a qualified radiologist.
A Radiologist is physician who uses imaging technologies to diagnose and treat various disorders. Imaging technologies include x-rays, as well as CAT scans and MRIs to gain visual information to help diagnose and treat disease. Radiology is subdivided into many fields in which radiologists may sub-specialize in order to treat particular conditions, parts of the body, or types of patients. Some of the many sub-specialties of radiology include breast imaging, computerized Tomography (CT or CAT scans), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, and radiation oncology.
In order to become a Radiologist, one must first receive medical school training and licensure as a physician before seeking advanced training in radiology. Training in Radiology requires several years of advanced training following medical school and residency. Additional years of training are required for Radiologists who choose to sub-specialize.
All physicians are required to attend an accredited medical school and residency before training to become a radiologist. Medical schools require undergraduate training in a science related field, as well as successful completion of the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Various schools and colleges offer flexible course schedules that range from day, night and weekend classes and training sessions.
