As a mobile radiologic technologist, you'll:
Use a company vehicle equipped with a compact, portable x-ray machine (DR), and drive locally to x-ray patients in different facilities throughout your shift to support patient populations from adults, geriatrics, women, and children. You'll also utilize EKGs, Holter Monitors, and Pace Maker Checks. If you are looking for a dynamic work experience with more freedom and flexibility than in a traditional hospital or clinic x-ray department, then a career move here is for you.

- Travel by vehicle to perform portable x-rays and EKG exams in a variety of settings, including nursing homes, assisted living facilities, correctional institutions, residential homes, and other patient locations.

- Follow ALARA principles for reducing radiation exposure.
- Prepare accurate physician and patient orders and transmit reading as required in a timely manner.
- Set, adjust, and operate a variety of electronic equipment to obtain diagnostic images to include EKG's and Holter Monitor.
- Ensure the equipment is available and in working order (in the vehicle) prior to shift start and shift end.
- Assist with order taking, validation of studies, communication with reading radiologists, customer call-backs, and other administrative and customer support functions as directed.
