November 8th to 14th marks Radiology Technologist Week
November 8th to 14th marks Radiology Technologist Week: a chance to highlight the exceptional contribution of all of our technologists who work in the Children’s Medical Imaging department. Whether they conduct X-ray exams, ultrasounds, fluoroscopy exams, CT scans or MRIs, each and every technologist plays a vital role in helping our specialists provide exceptional care to our patients and their families. Join us in thanking all of our technologists for the indispensable work they do every day!
MCH Radiology Technologists Catherine Lizotte and Assia Tverie stand in front of the brand new scoliosis machine, located in the Medical Imaging Department on the 2nd floor of Block B. The colourful machine is used to image patients standing up, to view the spine and lower extremities. The machine is not only child-friendly, but gives off seven times less radiation than a general radiography X-ray.
