Radiography to Radiology?

I am really interested in becoming a Radiology Therapist. However, the only school in my area that offers something close to this field is Radiography (I’m in Virginia, Hampton Roads area). If I pursue Radiography can I use this as a stepping stone to become a Radiology Therapist? If not what steps do I need to take? I am willing to relocate to another state to become a Radiology Therapist within reason. Does anyone know of an accredited school in Virgnia (preferably the AART) that I could attend for Radiology Therapy? Any information would be great! Thank you!

Radiography Vs. Physical Therapy?

I was recently interested in the radiography program but since I was only able to get a C the second time around in anatomy & physiology(failed the first time) & hearing students say its extremely hard for a A or B student to get into the program, I decided to switch to physical therapy assistant it seem like a more hands on approach and I like the fact that it deals with excersise, I used to play sports when I was younger. And with a C I was still confident to move on to the second part of anatomy & physiology because you could still get into the physical therapy assistant program with that. Im just wondering anyone out there who knows about radiograpy and physical therapy, do you think I made a good decision, I mean is the course work alot heavier in radiograpy then in physical therapy, I enjoy doing alot of things and I would enjoy working in any type of medical field. Im just wondering from experience is it alot more envolved in radiograpy or physical therapy?

Radiography Schools in Florida?

What is the difference between having an Associate’s or Bachelor’s Degree for Radiography?

Should I go into radiography?

I’m interested in going into radiography, but I heard the job outlook isn’t that great right now. If I’m really interested in it, should I just go for it and work hard to be the best, go to the best school, and hope I eventually find a job in the field?

I mean, would I probably be able to find a job within 2 years of graduation at least? I don’t mind if it takes a while, I just don’t want to NEVER find a job.

There is a school that is really hard to get into called UNMC, but if I could get in they have supplemental programs so I could also learn sonography and radiation therapy after I get my radiography degree. That way I can look for a radiography job right after I get my degree, and if I can’t find one I can continue to learn different things in the field so it would be easier for me to get a job in the future.

Should I give it a shot, or is the career outlook way too bad?

Cancer risk from Digital radiography?

Today I did radiography of my teeth. The device used was Soredex SCANORA 3D
My concern is because a doctor that operated the device put a protective suit on my chest and I am wondering if this scanning is so dangerous that I have to wear protective pretty heavy suit, then what about my mouth, tongue and brain that had no protection from X-Rays?

I am pretty concerned for my health right now. I was reading that X-Ray scans are equivalent to radiation from Atomic bomb dropped on Japan in WW2. Is this correct?

I mean why the hell are we using this if it’s so dangerous that other parts of my body have to be shielded from it????

Does radiography get boring?

Ok, I may be 13, but I’ve been looking in medicine for career options. I’m a bit squeamish, so I don’t necessarily want to be a doctor. But then, I saw radiology, and it seems really interesting. But I’m wondering, asking this to people who do this for their careers, does it get boring? It wouldn’t be good getting the qualifications and stuff, and then getting majorly bored of it.
