What does a traveling CT tech do?

A CT tech, or computed tomography technologist, plays a critical role in healthcare by operating CT scan equipment that utilizes x ray technology to capture diagnostic images of a patient’s internal organs, bones, and tissues. These detailed images assist physicians in diagnosing and treating diseases effectively. A travel CT technologist also follows facility protocols, prepares patients for the scan, explains the process, and ensures their comfort and safety during the procedure. To be successful in the travel CT tech profession, you’ll need a blend of technical skills, patient care expertise, and precision to make the most impact.
