The current age physiological treatments aren’t restricted to prescribing tablets and syrups. Some advanced medication techniques which operate more precisely and more directly on to the target diseases are available. One such prominent method is the nuclear medicine technology. People who are trained and have expertise in this field are known as nuclear medicine technologists.
The primary job task of a nuclear medicine technologist is to govern doses of radioactive drugs (known as radiopharmaceuticals) to patients and to control the concentration level of the exposed drug level in the patient’s body. After administering the drug, the next job is to capture its pictures as it passes in the patient’s body. The captured pictures are then forwarded to a physician for diagnosing purpose.
Now, given below is a sample resume for nuclear medicine technologist.
