After consulting the patient, the nurse would put in the order and ensure that the ultrasound was scheduled (and took place if within a hospital). Physicians and radiologists are diagnostic sonographers’ supervisors. A sonographer never steps out of their scope of practice and diagnoses a patient, that is the job of physicians. Physicians need sonographers to see into the body and the sonographers need the physicians
Asher Miller Mr. Klempner English 12-1 28 February 2018 Radiology As culture continues to evolve, the use of diagnostic imaging in the medical field progresses to assist patients in identifying the source of their illness. Radiologists utilize various technologies in this ever-advancing field to diagnose the maladies in patients from all aspects of life. After years of education and training, radiologists can work in a variety of settings, in which they read scans and determine what is wrong with a patient while acquiring many benefits in the process. As with any career in the medical field, radiologists must engage in years of education and learning to both increase their knowledge and gain valuable experience on how to operate and interpret
They provide a high standard of patient care, prepare patients for examinations, and explain procedures. Radiologic technologists have a thorough understanding of anatomy, positioning, radiographic exposure, patient care and radiation protection. Radiologic technologists follow physician’s orders and conform to the regulations concerning
CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION This research is to study on general radiographer’s compliance and understanding of the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) in Hospital Kuala Lumpur. This first chapter discuss the general overview of the research study. It includes the background of the study, the problem statement, the research question, the significant, the objectives and the hypothesis of the study. Background of Study Role of Radiographer A radiographer or medical imaging technologist is a well-trained health care worker who performs medical imaging by producing high quality radiographic images used to diagnose and treat injury or illness (Goergen, 2009). It is an essential part of medicine and a patient’s diagnosis and treatment is often dependent on the radiographic images produced.
The basic rules of bioethics have given a couple of lessons to deal with whenever you talk about bioethics publicly or a social media sites, good ethics starts with good facts, good arguments are based on good logic and identify and include all perspectives. Engaging the public in owning their own ideas is the main reason for the accepting of bioethics. One last thing to know is that there are not moral experts Bioethicists have no greater knowledge about what is right and wrong than any other person, their study is based on ethical theories, means of communication, and information on the law, policy, and history. It is very unlikely a Bioethicists will tell a patient or family that they are in the
This means that a dermatologist deals with any type of skin cancer, disease, or condition that the patient might have. It is important that the dermatologist knows how to properly diagnose the patient and carefully treat their condition. This is a technique that doctors will learn throughout their years of internship and residency. Dermatology can include surgical procedures, but not all dermatologists perform surgery. There are multiple types of dermatologists such as, a pediatric dermatologist, dermatophaology, cosmetic dermatologists, genital dermatologist, tele-dermatology, and procedural dermatologist (Different types of Dermatology Jobs).
Studies on radiographer’s profession is new and uncommonly discussed in Malaysia. Hence, most of the studies in this review were international studies as there were only few Malaysian studies found in relation to this topic. From the literature several key topics were identified and discussed includes definitions of stress, sources and effects, discussion and practical aspects related to radiographer’s profession. Various research studies were also included most of which were found to use both quantitative and qualitative research methods in their studies. Although the literatures present in a variety of contexts, this review primarily focus on the scope of the study.
Since economic justification is a major criterion for any testing method, the value of radiography lies to some extent in its ability to make a profit for its user. This value is apparent in machining operations where only pieces known to be sound are permitted on the production lines information gained from the use of radiography also assists the engineer in designing better products and protects the company by maintaining a uniform, high level of quality in its products. In total, these advantages can help to provide customer satisfaction and promote the manufacturers reputation for excellence. ( richard A Quiin and Claire c.sigi 1980) Industrial radiography is tremendously versatile. Objects radiographed range in size from microminiature electronic parts to mammoth missile components; in product composition examination of hundreds of specimens per hour.
Justice is impartiality when dealing with perceived injustices, and that alone proves that it is impossible for justice to be exist, let alone be implemented in human society. Since the dawn of civilisation, humankind has searched for a way to define justice and punish criminals for their wrongs, leading to the birth of various law codes, all of which can be unjust, and all law codes are flawed by default as they require humans to determine if one is a criminal. To begin with, the mere concept of impartiality which justice needs is unattainable by human beings. To be truly unbiased, one has to be separated from all emotions, experiences, and history of their cultures. In other words, one has to be, in Rawl’s words, ‘in an original position behind a veil of ignorance’ for justice to be truly just.
An excellent first step is to require that all who work with or around radiation, including physicians, equipment operators, technologists, nurses, anesthesiologists, and any others, take a radiation safety course. Although some may argue there is no time in the work day for this, it must be made a priority. Training can’t help but result in improvement in safer use of radiation. It is also important to foster good communication among the healthcare team, and ensure that everyone understands radiation safety is his or her job. Nurses and technologists must be encouraged to speak up if they are concerned about safety practices.
