AHP RadiographerThe radiography profession includes both diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers.
There are 517 radiographers working within the HPSS in Northern Ireland.

Diagnostic Radiographers

Are involved directly with the patient producing medical diagnostic static, dynamic and reconstructed images of anatomical body areas and organs using medical imaging techniques that include ionising radiation, ultrasound and magnetic fields. The role includes administration of intravenous injections, diagnostic reporting of images, performing diagnostic examinations and proactive involvement in multi-disciplinary research projects.

Therapeutic Radiographers

Have a diverse and pivotal role within the clinical oncology team, using ionising radiation and a variety of equipment and treatment machines to maintain the care pathway of the patient with cancer. This involves the complexities of radiation physics, treatment localization and verification in a rapidly dynamic speciality. The radiotherapy team ensures patient centred care, with advice, support, treatment and review of the patient’s clinical progress, during and after their treatment.
