The American registry of radiology technologists
Every profession is usually regulated to avoid members going over board to commit certain errors either of omission or commission, in the United States, two bodies are always tasked with the regulation of the oncology and radiology practices .one of such bodies is the American registry of radiology technologists.
To this end, the body has come up with a set of rules and regulations with an aim of meeting the professional needs of its members while at the same time maintaining high ethical standards thus the document called the ‘equation of excellence’. and the therapist handbook .these documents sets the minimum educational levels of all radiology therapist practitioners, the ethical issues and the requirements to sit for an exam to be accredited to practice as a therapist in the united states.
In that regard certain restrictions abound on the eligibility criteria by the several persons interested in joining the practice of oncology and radiology to be precise. The association in furtherance to its ethics rule establishes strict ethical regulations bordering on issues of felony, misdemeanor and other criminal acts that can arise in the course of practice. For instance, the relationship between the patient and the therapist is required to remain as such with no other strings. The regulation further guards the patient’s personal privacy through strict adherence to the code.
The exams administered by the association is meant to ensure high levels of quality are met by all the eligible members who are admissible within the fold and makes the radiologist get an opportunity to advertise his or her skills to those who may be interested after acquiring the certification.
