It’s National Radiologic Technology Week and Frederick Memorial Hospital
is celebrating our Radiologic Technologists for the vital service they
provide to our community!
Each day thousands of people across the country undergo medical procedures
to diagnose or treat an injury or disease. From Radiography, Nuclear Medicine,
Sonography, MRI to CT, Mammography, Bone Densitometry and more; Radiologic
Technologists play a critical role in providing high-quality, safe procedures
Within our team of caregivers is a premier group of Registered Technologists®
who are certified and registered by The American Registry of Radiologic
Technologists® (ARRT). These professionals receive this nationally
recognized credential by completing an approved educational program, complying
with ethics standards and passing a rigorous exam. Because certification
and registration must be maintained annually, these professionals remain
at the top of their industry in ensuring ongoing quality patient care
and safety measures through continuing education and ethics requirements.
All FMH Imaging professionals are certified and registered by ARRT, as
well as the Maryland Board of Physicians.
For our Registered Technologists, patient care is giving 110% every time.
Providing quality patient care is a recipe of physics, ethics, safety,
quality, and relationship building. Certification and registration is
an obligation to uphold a profession, as with ARRT’s gold standard
in medical imaging, and interventional procedures. According to ARRT,
they represent a gold standard in patient care, and as members of our
team here at FMH, we couldn’t agree more!
During National Radiologic Technology Week, Frederick Memorial Hospital
would like to thank our Imaging Staff for their hard work, dedication
to their profession, and continued support of the FMH mission to provide
our patients with superb quality, superb service, all the time. National
Radiologic Technology Week serves as an annual celebration to recognize
