GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF CLASS
The RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGIST 1 operates x-ray and related equipment used to take and develop radiographs for the purpose of general medical, dental, and veterinary diagnostic radiology.
This is the first level of a two-level series. It is distinguished from the higher level by the lack of responsibility for coordinating the technological procedures of generic diagnostic radiography in a medical facility that includes radiography in diagnostic rooms and possibly with portable units. At this level there is less responsibility for quality control, including reviewing radiographs of other technologists for technical quality.
