Medical Radiation Technologists (MRT) Week

October 17, 2023

This year, Medical Radiation Technologists (MRT) Week takes place from November 5 to 11. This annual celebration recognizes and raises awareness of the vital role that MRTs play in the health-care system.

The MRT profession consists of four disciplines: radiological technology, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy or magnetic resonance imaging. They bridge the gap between sophisticated technology and patient care, delivering imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch.

We are proud to recognize our highly skilled and compassionate MRT members.
