Radiographers play a vital role in modern healthcare – diagnosing injury or disease and treating patients. It is a demanding role which requires technical expertise as well as sensitivity in dealing with patients who may be anxious or in pain.

How to become a diagnostic radiographer
Diagnostic radiographers usually work in the radiology and imaging departments of hospitals, where they capture and interpret images before reporting their findings.
How to become a therapeutic radiographer
Therapeutic radiographers work in the oncology department of a hospital using technical equipment to target diseased tissue with precise doses of radiation.
