Diagnostic Radiologic Technologists at this level are fully functional and are able to carry out their assigned tasks independently. DRTs at this level have varying assignments including support of Interventional and Vascular Procedures, as well as Vascular/Neurosurgical/Orthopedic procedures using biplane imaging equipment in the Operating Room. They perform diagnostic Computed Tomography (CT) and other complex radiographic procedures, including CT-guided biopsies and Interventional diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Regardless of the nature of the specific assignments, the knowledge, skills, and abilities must be sufficient to independently perform at the level of complexity required. All technologists that are assigned to the position are required to be placed in an on-call status for coverage of complex after-hours procedures in the Operating Room, Computed Tomography and Interventional Radiology. Computerized Tomography (CT): This specialty modality requires specific knowledge of cross-sectional human anatomy and its application in spiral, and/or multi-slice computer tomography, inclusive of 3-D reconstruction scans, including drainages, biopsies, and peripheral vascular examinations. The technologist requires specific knowledge and training in the location, appearance, and function of the various major and minor systems susceptible to radiological illumination; to interpret the examination request accurately; to understand the functioning and inter-relationship of the various organs; to use the methods and techniques which will identify organs appearing on the digital display monitor, or on film, and the various stages of the examination to judge the acceptability of the image and/or scan for diagnostic use and to emphasize the aspect of interest to the physician. (DRT assignments that include performance of independent duties in this subspecialty require advanced ARRT certification.) Interventional Radiography (IR): Technologists working in this special assignment may function as vascular interventional (VI), cardiac interventional (CI) and/or cardiovascular-interventional (CV) technologists which use specialized equipment to perform diagnostic angiographic procedures and complex vascular and nonvascular interventional and therapeutic procedures. This specialty requires additional knowledge of vascular systems and major vessel anatomy. The technologist must be knowledgeable in the specialized equipment employed for digital subtraction systems and interventional procedures. The technologist administers contrast media under the supervision of the staff radiologist and confers with the radiologist to establish requirements regarding contrast agents, vital signs, medications, and physiologic monitoring to perform procedures. IR technologist must be knowledgeable in digital imagining and PACS. Work Schedule: 11:30am-7:00pm, 1:30pm-10:00pm, 3:30pm-12:00am Financial Disclosure Report: Not require
