The Radiology Team

When you have a radiology procedure or test, an entire team may work on your behalf, including radiologists, technologists, nurses and other Valley Presbyterian Hospital staff.


We have several radiologists leading the radiology team. These radiologists are doctors with four to six years of training after medical school and are board certified. After your procedure or test, one of the radiologists will review your test results, may perform interventional procedures and treatments, or consult with other doctors about your care.

Radiologic Technologist (RT)

Licensed and certified radiologic technologists (RTs) are skilled in safely capturing images needed for your care including X-rays, CT scans, and MRI scans. During your visit, they will prepare you for procedures, operate the equipment, and work with a radiologist to evaluate images.

Registered Vascular Sonographer (RVT)

Valley Presbyterian Hospital’s Registered Vascular Sonographers (RVT) are accredited to perform scans related to vascular disease or disorders using ultrasonic imaging tests in our vascular lab. After your exam is completed, the RVTs assist the radiology team in your diagnosis and treatment.

Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS)

Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographers are trained and certified for enhanced patient safety when performing ultrasonic imaging tests for certain areas of your body and may have specialties such as the abdomen, breasts, fetal echocardiography, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics.

Nurse (RN)

Radiology nurses are an important part of the team, helping with your care when receiving anesthesia, IVs, medication and other procedures. They will explain what your procedure or exam may involve and act as a liaison between you, your family, and the rest of the team.

Medical Physicist

Medical physicists are certified in radiology and have a PhD with a doctoral degree. They are indispensable in making sure your diagnostics and other exams are measured correctly, and may set guidelines for procedures and monitor equipment. They will also be involved in the planning of your treatment.
