Job Description

Overview

At Saxony, we pride ourselves on treating each patient with the utmost care. We utilize best practice to assure each of our patients achieve an optimal outcome.

A radiology nurse, also referred to as a medical imaging nurse, is a nursing professional that cares for patients that must undergo diagnostic imaging procedures and radiation therapy. Common diagnostic imaging tests include x-rays, computed tomography scans (CT scans), magnetic resonance imaging scans (MRIs), and ultrasounds. Using these imaging tests, medical professionals are able to see inside a patient’s body, enabling them to easily diagnose illnesses and suspected injuries. 

A radiology nurse works as a member of a larger team of medical professionals, including physicians, specialists, other nurses, and radiology technicians. As radiology nurses work in conjunction with other healthcare professionals, being able to effectively communicate is essential. With the amount of collaboration between other medical professionals and a high turnover in patients, one must be easily adaptable. A radiology nurse is primarily responsible for the assessment, planning, and care of patients who undergo diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. 

The primary role of a radiology nurse is to care for patients in need of radiology procedures. Other duties include:

  • Assessing patients prior to their procedures by studying patient medical histories and speaking with both patients and their physicians
  • Helping patients better understand the procedures they need and serving as a liaison between the patient, nursing staff, and physician.
  • observation of conscious sedation patients undergoing MRI examinations
  • oversight of Nuclear Medicine Lexiscan studies, CT Cardiac exams, and MRI pacemaker studies port access and deaccess
  • lab draw for patients also needing blood draw during visit.
  • Explaining the procedures needed by answering any questions/concerns patients and family may have.
  • Responsible for instructing patients on what to do before a particular procedure.
  • Responsible for preparing the patient on the day of procedure.
  • Operating radiology machines and at times reading diagnostic images.
  • Reassessing patients after their procedure and providing care until they are ready to be discharged.
