Why Radiologist Assistants?
Patient need for medical imaging is increasing at a rapid pace, and radiology departments are struggling to meet the demand. In order to provide better patient care and efficiency, imaging departments are turning to registered radiologist assistants (R.R.A.s) to help meet the needs of patients and provide some relief to radiologists’ workloads.
R.R.A.s are vital team-members in the medical field, functioning as extensions of radiologists and carrying out procedures under their indirect supervision. Duties may include patient assessment and management, and performing clinical exams as needed. A career as an R.R.A. is fulfilling and will allow you to continue to grow and progress in your profession.
