National Radiologic Technology Week 2017


Frederick Regional Health System is celebrating National Rad Tech week and we’d like to thank our Radiologic Technologists for the vital service they provide to our community!

On any given day, thousands of people across the country undergo medical procedures to diagnose or treat an injury or disease. From Radiography, Nuclear Medicine, Sonography, MRI, CT, Mammography, Bone Densitometry and more, Radiologic Technologists play a critical role in providing high quality, safe procedures and treatments.

Our team of caregivers includes a premier group of Registered Technologists®, 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, ensuring ongoing quality patient care and safety measures through continuing education and ethics requirements.

All FRHS Imaging professionals are certified and registered by ARRT and the Maryland Board of Physicians.

For our Registered Technologists, patient care is giving 100% during every procedure and patient interaction. 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, we would like to thank our Imaging Staff for their hard work, dedication to their profession, and continued support of our mission to provide our patients with superb quality, superb service, all the time. National Radiologic Technology Week serves as an annual celebration to recognize the significant work of Radiologic Technologist’s all across the nation.

During this very same week, over 120 years ago, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered x-ray technology, marking a huge development in medical technology. To learn more about the discovery of x-ray technology, and innovations in medical imaging and radiation therapy, click here.

As we join in this celebration of 122 years of imaging technology and advancement, we would like to recognize and thank all Radiologic Technologists for their hard work and dedication to the health and well-being of the communities they serve.
