|Subject:||Recognizing the Week of November 5-11, 2017 as "National Radiological Technology Week in PA"|
|In the near future, I intend to introduce a resolution recognizing the week of November 5-11, 2017 as "National Radiological Technology Week in PA".
Radiologic Technologists play a vital role in diagnosing and treating patients by capturing images via ionizing radiation, specializing in a variety of radiation therapy modalities, understanding Radiologic science and providing important information to physicians and other medical professionals.
On November 8th, 1895, Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray, which revolutionized medicine and for which he was awarded the first Nobel Prize for Physics in 1901. The first National Radiologic Technology Week was celebrated in 1979 to honor the important contributions of medical imaging professionals to the safe and thorough treatment of patients.
There are 17,000 professionals in the Radiologic sciences living and working in Pennsylvania, providing the highest diagnostic and therapeutic care to individuals. These medical professionals are dedicated to the highest standard of professionalism and continually maintain those standards through education, lifelong learning and credentialing.
Please join me in recognizing the important role of Radiological Technology in Pennsylvania.
