They produce images which are used to confirm or exclude a medical diagnosis, to advise on a treatment or illness, monitor patient progress, or provide medical screening. A genuine interest in managing a wide range of patients and their needs is an important function of the professional.
Radiation therapists play an integral role in the treatment, care and management of patients undergoing radiation therapy treatment, primarily in treating a range of cancer types. Graduates must balance a genuine interest in patients and their welfare with the technical requirements necessary to undertake radiation therapy procedures.
