  • adjusting equipment/factors to obtain a clear undistorted view of the area of interest
  • determining proper current voltage and exposure time for each procedure
  • preparing and administering contrast media
  • evaluating radiographic quality of obtained images
  • ensuring radiation protection for personnel, patients and the general public
  • keeping records/ files and preparing reports of procedures

Integral to radiography are: direct patient care, communication skills and technical/scientific activities.
