HOLY CROSS HOSPITAL

The place where it all began.

history of radiology
Wilhelm Roentgen discovered X-rays in 1895.

First X-ray was of his wife’s hand which was on a piece of glass.

X-rays were used for entertainment: checked for foot sizes, used at circuses, bone portraits, home models were even sold for parties.

In the beginning, there were a lot of safety issues due to the unknown hazards of radiation exposure.

History of Radiology
what does an x ray technologist do
WHAT DOES AN X-RAY TECHNOLOGIST DO?
  • Patient care: dealing with patients in various states of health

  • Radiation protection: time, distance, shielding
  • Live X-ray exams: Fluoroscopy (X-ray video)
  • Responsible for cleaning and stocking all X-ray exam rooms
  • Obtaining and documenting patient history
modalities

the following radiographs show normal lumbar spine anatomy

The following radiographs show normal lumbar spine anatomy.

Progressing caudally, the vertebral bodies increase in stature. The disc spaces also increase in size until L5-S1, which is often smaller than L4-L5.

Like the thoracic spine, the vertebral bodies should have smooth alignment and continuous sclerotic margins

ROUTINES ROTATION

During your first year as a student at Holy Cross Hospital, you will rotate through a month of routine diagnositic X-ray. Each day you will be assigned to assist a technologist in performing various exams.

emergency center and express care rotation
EMERGENCY CENTER AND EXPRESS CARE ROTATION

Both juniors and seniors will spend one month each year in the Emergency Center. There, the student will be exposed to a fast-paced and demanding facet of radiology.

pain management rotation
PAIN MANAGEMENT ROTATION

Separate from Medical Imaging, Pain Management is a department of its own. Here students learn to operate a C-arm during epidural steriod injections.

slide31

FLUOROSCOPY ROTATION

Fluoro is a branch of diagnostic radiology. Fluoro exams include barium enemas, small bowel follow throughs, upper GIs, esphograms and other like studies requiring contrasting agents.

ivp room 2 ercp rotation
IVP/ROOM 2/ERCP ROTATION

IVP or intraveinous pyelogram are studies of the kidneys often using a tomography unit. ERCPs are studies using small cameras inserted into the body and are most often done in room 2.

modalities rotation
MODALITIES ROTATION
  • Students will learn the protocol for performing exams in the following areas:
  • Ultrasound
  • Nuclear Medicine
  • MRI
  • Mammography
surgery or operating room rotation
SURGERY OR OPERATING ROOM ROTATION

During this rotation, the student will be exposed to exams done in the operating room either during, after or prior to a surgery. Exams performed in this rotation are done using a portable C-arm.

portables rotation
PORTABLES ROTATION

Portable or bedside radiography is a form of mobile imaging done by our department. These portable X-ray machines are equipped to image unstable patients not capable of traveling to the department.

specialized senior year rotations
Computer Aided Tomography (CAT)

Angiography

Cardiac Catheterization Lab

Radiologist

Evenings

Weekends

SPECIALIZED SENIOR-YEAR ROTATIONS
slide37

COMPUTER-ASSISTED TOMOGRAPHY

CAT scan is another modality in which the machine cuts the body into image slices to better view the internal organs of the body. Here the student will learn the equipment and protocol for performing CAT scans.

angiography
ANGIOGRAPHY

Angiography is a modality that specializes in the imaging of the vessels in the body. Images are produced through the use of a

C-arm much like the one used in the OR and EPIs.

cardiac catheterization lab
CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION LAB

In this modality, the student learns the importance of the studies done in the Cath Lab. Specialized images of the heart, great vessels and placement of cardiac aids are produced here.

radiologist rotation
RADIOLOGIST ROTATION

This rotation takes place in the radiology reading room. Each day, the student is assigned to a Radiologist to observe the reading of films. The student learns what the doctor is looking for in each particular study.

evening rotation
EVENING ROTATION

This rotation is done during your senior year. It gives the student another perspective on diagnostic radiology outside of the normal daytime shift.

weekend rotation
WEEKEND ROTATION

This rotation also is done only during your senior year. It allows the student to see how weekends differ from weekday shifts.

BOXER’S FRACTURE

  • Occurs during a punch with a closed first
  • Usually involves the fifth metacarpal but the fourth metacarpal also may be involved
