Wanted: RadTech
I saw Michel’s, my friend and former classmate, posted bulletin at friendster.com and I sent him a note asking him if he wants me to blog it here; fortunately he’s happy about the offer, so here it is.

MEDISENSE LABORATORY CENTER INC. urgently needs a licensed Radiologic Technologist/X-ray Technologist for their Davao branch. What’s good about this is that they offer the following:

  1. free accommodation
  2. one-way fare in going to Davao, and
  3. vacation every three (3) months with free two-way fare (back and forth)

For those who are interested, or for more information, you may leave a message here; and if you are, by any chance, living in Bacolod City, you may visit their branch at Door 3 AU & Sons Bldg., Burgos St., Bacolod City and look for Michel or Larry.

Job Description and Opportunities for Radiologic Technologists

Radiologic Technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. We are educated in the following fields:

  • Anatomy
  • Equipment protocols
  • Radiation safety
  • Radiation protection
  • Patient care techniques
  • Patient positioning
  • Examination technique


Specializations

  • Mammography – which focuses on breast cancer detection
  • Computed Tomography (CT) - produces axial images
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – uses huge magnets and radiowaves
  • Sonography (ultrasound) – uses high-frequency sound waves
  • Nuclear Medicine – uses radiopharmaceuticals and special cameras to produce images of organs and reveal their function
  • Radiation Therapy – administers highly focused forms of radiation to treat cancer and other diseases
  • Bone densitometry
  • Cardiovascular-interventional radiography
  • Quality management

Employment Opportunities

According to U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics job opportunities are expected to be favorable because a large number of employers report difficulty hiring sufficient numbers of radiologic technologists and technicians. Imbalances between the demand for, and supply of, radiologic technologists and technicians should spur efforts to attract and retain qualified workers, such as improved compensation and working conditions. Employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase by about 15 percent from 2008 to 2016, faster than the average for all occupations.

Radiologic Technologists No Longer Needed

While watching and downloading some videos from youtube, I came across this very interesting video, which I think may alarm th Radiology Profession. A new technology has already risen that may possibly replace the x-ray imaging system…

I’m sure you’re already wondering what I am talking about. Well, just watch the video below to see what I mean.

I wonder if this device uses radiation or not…or if it does, how on earth can it be produced? I mean the x-rays… If you have any idea or you have already encountered this modern technology, kindly share your thoughts in the comment section…I’d love to hear it…
