The radiography profession includes both diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers.
Employ a range of different imaging techniques and sophisticated equipment to produce high quality images of an injury or disease.

They use a range of techniques including x-rays, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, CT (computed tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), nuclear medicine, and angiography.
Have a vital role in the delivery of radiotherapy services for the treatment of cancer. They are the only healthcare professionals qualified to plan and deliver radiotherapy. They work with clinical oncologists, medical physicists and engineers and are responsible for the planning and delivery of accurate radiotherapy treatments using a wide range of technical equipment. The accuracy of these are critical to treat the tumour and destroy the diseased tissue, while minimising the amount of exposure to surrounding healthy tissue.
