The people responsible for this are called radiology technologists. The imaging techniques used for radiology include, X- ray radiography, nuclear medicine that involves the use (PET), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), the use computed tomography and ultrasound (Ross, 30-33). The technologists are responsible for acquiring the images, interprets such images and makes a report to be presented to the medical expert that requested such images. The radiologists have knowledge in human anatomy, the needed patient examination techniques, and the safety of radiation, protection from radiation both for the patient and the
