Course introduction

In this course you will learn what is a Radiotherapist and what does he or she really do.

A Radiotherapist is a health professional who uses radiation to treat disease, usually cancer.  A Radiotherapist is also responsible for collecting relevant patient information and uses this information to make a plan for a patient’s treatment. 

As a diagnostic Radiographer your work would usually involve:
- Producing and interpreting high quality images of the body to identify and diagnose injury and disease.
- Screening for abnormalities.
- Taking part in surgical procedures, like biopsies (examining tissues to find the cause of disease).

As a therapeutic radiographer, your duties would normally be to:
- Plan and deliver treatment using x-rays and other radioactive sources.
- Work closely with medical specialists to plan and treat malignant tumours or tissue defects.
- Assess and monitor patients throughout treatment and follow up.

Both areas will involve working as part of a team alongside Radiologists, Radiology Nurses, Clinical Oncologists, Physicists, and other health care professionals.
