Celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week

In anticipation of National Radiologic Technology Week, we are giving a great big shout out to some unsung heroes in the healthcare field: the rad techs! November 3-9, health care systems, physicians, nurses, and plenty of grateful patients say thank you to the skilled professionals who make speedy diagnoses and effective treatment possible.

The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety. This year’s theme is “R.T.s: Positioning Ourselves for Excellence.”

Here at Bluestone Diagnostics, we’ve seen firsthand that R.T.’s are already pretty excellent! Not only do R.T.s operate the medical diagnostic imaging equipment, they play a vital role in humanizing what can be a frightening experience for patients. By guiding patients through the testing process, they reduce the anxiety and stress many patients feel, which can contribute significantly to better patient outcomes.

Additionally, R.T.’s are often the first line of defense when it comes to maintaining the diagnostic imaging equipment – their awareness and insights play a critical role in keeping equipment operational, eliminating costly downtime. Health care systems administrators know very well the bottom-line impact equipment downtime can have. Eliminating diagnostic imaging equipment downtime also ensures speedier access to diagnostic testing, which raises patient satisfaction levels. In many ways, R.T.s help keep your practice going.

To all the Rad Techs out there, thank you for what you do, each and every day! The health care world is a better place because of your efforts. Your work makes a difference to your patients, colleagues, and the community at large. Give yourself a big pat on the back – you truly deserve it!
