National Radiologic Technology Week® (NRTW) 2022 is Nov. 6-12. Created by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists in 1979, this weeklong 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.
Radiologic technologists interact with patients to produce images which demonstrate the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the body. Medical diagnosis is highly dependent upon visualizing the inside of the body.
