It is World Radiography Day today, celebrating the anniversary of the discovery of x-radiation, by Wilhelm Roentgen in 1895.
Radiographers are a vital part of a patients pathway here at the Montefiore Hospital, with most patients passing through the Diagnostics Department for an x-ray, ultrasound, mammogram, CT scan, MRI scan or fluoroscopy or theatre procedure at some point during their care.
Our Radiographers gave a tour and answered any questions the colleagues from other departments had. They even had some bone-shaped sweets and pens!
Fun facts about our Radiography team:
- The 11 Radiographers on duty today have a combined experience of 225 years, ranging from 4 years to 30 years post qualification.
