“I chose to study radiography because of my past experiences during several injuries that resulted in broken bones. I really liked how compassionate the radiology techs were and how they truly made the experience comfortable for me.” “Another reason I chose this field is that I am intrigued with the different techniques radiographers use to get the right image, plus the fact that you can see the anatomy inside a living human being.”
