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?

Is Radiologist Technologist the same as Radiography? or is it Radiation Therapy?

I was also wondering which school is the best for Nuclear Medicine Technology.

Radiation therapy OR radiography, Which field is the best to study, comparing the demand, salary,….?

Is it better to get a BS in radiation therapy or AS in radiography? Which field will make me more competitive professional with so many options?

Are there any college in Houston with a program specifically for radiation therapy?

I’m not looking to do radiography (for x-rays and such), but to administer radiation therapy to cancer patients.

Going for doctorate in physical therapy but already have degree in as radiology technologist. Is this good?

I have my AS in radiography but am going for a bs in biology to go to physical therapy school.

what schools in texas near dallas offer programs for radiology therapy and/or x-ray tech?

please help.

Cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy often have weakened immune systems.Also include the dangers?

Radiation Therapy or Nuclear Medicine Technology?

Radiation Therapy or Nuclear Medicine Technology which program is better and why.

Which has better growth. Also should I get a associate degree or bachelor.

What’s the difference between Radiography and Radiation Therapy?

I am a 1st year college student, and am taking pre-requisites for the radiologic technologist program at my school, Pasadena City College. I’m also wondering if this is an accredited program? I am interested in the Nuclear Med field but heard that we must first become an RT first. I am clueless and any help would be appreciated.

Pranic Therapy Ii

Pranic Therapy Part II


All the four forces in the Universe – weak nuclear force, strong nuclear

force, electricity & magnetism -are but different manifestations of

that Unitary Power which the Vedists call Prana. Using this Vital Energy

to heal is called Pranic Therapy. This article is a continuation of the

earlier article Pranic Therapy Part I.


Application of Chaos Theory in the field of Medicine


Another breathtaking development in medicine is the application of Chaos

Theory. Chaos theory,advanced by Mendelbrot, is a mathematical theory

applied to non-linear and random events. It sees order in chaos. Most of

ordinary phenomena in the world such as changes of weather, the

behaviour of cancer cells, occurrence of heart attack, movement of

electrons etc, do not seem to follow any regular & recurrent pattern &

are unpredictable on the basis of linear mathematics . Though it

contradicts Laplace, its positive aspect is that is sees Cosmos ( order )

in Chaos.


Chaos theory of maths tries to find a more meaningful correlation &

behavioural pattern in such systems. One of the most fundamental

properties of an organism is Homeostasis, the maintenance of a

fixed internal milieu, especially with regard to body temperature, BP,

pH etc.The earlier school of thought regarded homeostasis as health,

( Walter Cannon called it “the wisdom of the body” ) & any deviation

from it was disease. But Chaos theory revolutionised this thinking &

pointed out that health is the flexibility of an organism to respond to

any changing environment.Our lungs, heart, liver etc are all designed

to deal with frequent changes & health is the flexibility or capacity

to maintain this state of chaos at the maximal level of efficiency.


Holistic health does not reject the Western system of medicine in toto.

In the case of infectious diseases, nutritional & hormonal deficiencies

and bodily defects which need surgical intervention, it follows the Western

system. Psychosomatic diseases such as hypertension, peptic ulcer,

allergic asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome etc

can be treated by Holistic Medicine, it averrs. Holistic health provides

a way of life which prevents the reccurrence of some of these ailments.

It is more prophylactic, preventive, curative & restorative.


Integral Life


Integral Life is an ancient Vedic ideal. The ancient Rishies ( Seers )

believed in the fulness of Life – 100 % materialism & 100% spirituality.

They actualised the Unity of Life first – long before they realized the

Unity of Consciousness. The unitary principle of life is known as Prana,

the Vital Energy. Cosmic Prana is a major topic of discussion in the

Upanishads. This Universal Vital Energy flows through invisible

channels in the human body known as Nadis. The Brhadaranyaka

Upanishad describes Prana as Truth and Brahman as the Truth

of Truths. It was during this period ( around 500 B C ) that India

developed the Science of Life known as Ayurveda.


An integral view of life far more comprehensive than that of any school

of Vedanta was developed by Tantras which arose between the 6th &

9th centuries AD. The Ultimate Reality is conceived of as Chit-Shakti,

Consciousness-Force. Matter, Mind & Self are all regarded as mani-

festations of this Universal Power which is personified as the Divine

Mother. All activities are carried on by the Consciousness -Force

( The Universe is the play and display of Consciousness-Force) &

all we have to do is to open ourselves to Her Power through self-surrender

and aspiration. This master science was revived by modern Masters

like Aurobindo and Ramakrishna.

The programme for activating the body’s own self-renewal processes

is called holistic health programme. It may take months or years

for the body to learn new patterns of response and renew itself.

And this programme succeeds only when certain conditions are fulfilled.

Awakening to a New Holistic Health Awareness


Only after undergoing an inner conversion do people start on a holistic

health programme. This conversion may come naturally in the fulness of time

or by coming into contact with a holistic health adept or Yoga teacher. But

more commonly, the inner transformation takes place only when people have

reached the limits of suffering or when the shadow of some terminal illness

looms large on the horizon. Fear, they say, is the beginning of wisdom.


Pain is the first born of the Inconscience

And thy body’s dumb original base !


Whatever way the change occurs, it takes the form of two inner processes;

a new attitude towards one’s body and a feeling of responsibility for one’s

own health.


Man’s greatest enemy – Thanatos ( Death-instinct )


The notion that what a person loves most is his own body has been

proved erroneous by Freud. Freud, who declared that pleasure

seeking ( hedonism ) was the basic instinct in man, modified his view

later. He came to the conclusion that along with Life-instinct ( known

as Eros ) man had apparently a powerful Death-instinct ( known as

Thanatos ) which manifested itself as Self-hate & aggressive

behaviour. He showed that not all accidents were really accidents.

The accident-proneness of the victims produced by the unconscious

death wish they had cherished was the cause behind some accidents.

Research has indicated enough evidence for vicious & insidious

forms of self-hate in man. We can understand how self-hate operates

on the level of the Unconscious if we observe the way many people

abuse their own stomachs, lungs & other vital organs, and the way

some people bring ruin upon themselves by yielding to drug addiction

& alcoholism. This self-hate acts as an inhibiting factor for most

individuals. Success can be achieved, said Dr Maxwell Maltz,

if this inhibitive factor is removed from the mind. Most people

are unaware of it & drift through life unaware of the self- harm they

do. Some of them wake up from this unconscious drifting and

begin to have a new attitude – an attitude of love, friendliness

and peace towards themselves & their brethren.It actually indicates

the dawn of true love for one’s higher Self known as the Atman.


Thanatos was known in Vedanta as Thamas ( the destructive

element in man ). Thamas is destructive and self-destructive.

By yogic sadhana alone can this Thamas or Thanatos be

destroyed.


Yet till evil is slain in its own home

And light invades the world’s inconscient base

And perished is the Adversary force

He ( the Saviour ) must still labour on, his work halfdone! ( Aurobindo )
