This podcast accompanies my YouTube channel, and helps build confidence, skill, and efficiency to provide the best possible patient care. Radiography as a career is much more than simply pushing a button. You need to continually grow in our knowledge and understanding of the radiologic technologist skill set, while keeping up-to-date on the latest technological changes in the field, and keeping radiation dose as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA).

    Radiology Q&A: How to find Cross Training Opportunities

    Today, I’m giving you my personal advice and tips for creating cross-training opportunities for yourself...  DOWNLOAD the free worksheet!

    After being cross-trained in 4 different modalities myself, and as a hiring manager who interviews technologists for cross-training opportunities, I wanted to create this video to provide some tips for obtaining these opportunities, as well as describe steps you can take to be proactive.  Make sure to download the free worksheet if you're truly serious about cross-training into another modality.  This Radiology Q&A video was made as a result of questions from the "Rad Tech Career Advice" Facebook Page.  Check it out HERE.

    Instagram LIVE Session 6/2/2020

    Yesterday, I went live on Instagram to talk about the weekly challenge kickoff - the very first challenge is simple: Collimate 1/2" tighter than you usually do for PA and AP chest x-rays.  Also, YouTube video production plans, info about my new website and products coming soon, and of course, I'd like to know what type of radiography-related content you'd like to see!

    Radiology Q&A: What Happens When The X-Ray Button Is Pushed?

    Radiology Q&A: What Happens When The X-Ray Button Is Pushed?

    In this first episode of my new series, "Radiology Q&A", I'm answering the question, "what happens when the x-ray button is pressed?"    

    Subscribe for more Radiology and Q&A videos like this on YouTube! 

    As an instructor of radiologic technology teaching exposure principles, this is a question we spend some time on throughout the radiography program.  I'm doing my best to sum it up in just a few short minutes!  Essentially, the x-ray button is pressed half-way to cause two main things to happen: anode acceleration to constant velocity and thermionic emission at the cathode.  Once that constant velocity has been reached at the anode, the technologist has the green light to press the button the entire way down... this causes potential difference (kVp) to be applied to the current going to the anode, which propels the electrons toward the tungsten target of the anode, where x-rays are produced as a result of their interaction.

    Coronavirus: Why We Should Care

    Coronavirus: Why We Should Care

    There's a lot of misinformation floating around about COVID-19, especially considering the political climate and the amount of resources available in the United States to handle this pandemic.  I hope to share some facts, lend some clarity, and provide you with resources to help you prevent your own potential infection of Coronavirus through informed decisions.  This episode is not radiography-specific, so please share with friends/family as well.  

    Some data and articles referenced in this episode:

    WHO declares COVID-19 a Pandemic

    Radiology Exam Results

    Radiology Exam Results

    Today's question: "Does the radiologist know the results of an exam right away, or does someone else read it later?"  I'll cover some of the many variables related to the prioritization of radiology orders for dictation and distinguish between the technologist and the radiologist, as well as some limitations in scope fo practice.

Helpful! Thank you!

2nd year radiographer student here. This definitely helps me retain info and material better. Grasping at any useful source of info I can since being shut down for 6 months. Missing out on all that clinical experience, has been rough. This really does help, if anyone has any other suggestions. Please let me know! Material currently in use. RAD tech boot camp, Merrill’s, Bushong, and Carleton. Thanks! Stay healthy.
