Nichole Jelenek prepares to take an x-ray on a patient
Providing patients with safe medical imaging examinations and radiation therapy treatments is the prime goal for the nation’s radiologic technologists.To recognize the vital work of its R.T.s, AFC Urgent Care Yorktown is celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week®, Nov. 5-11, 2017 specifically their RT’s Nichole Jelenek, Joanne Denti, Elizabeth Parish, Stephanie Santana and Christopher Snyder. “We are so proud of our RT’s,” stated Kellie Slater, Marketing and Outreach Director for AFC Yorktown, “they not only do their jobs with precision and professionalism but they make each and every patient that comes through our doors feel comfortable, like family.”
NRTW was created by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists in 1979. The event is celebrated each year during the week of Nov. 8, the day that German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 1895.
Medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals work with some of the most innovative equipment in the medical field to help identify pathologies, plan and administer treatment and restore patient health. R.T.s specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy and general diagnostic radiology.
