Radiology is a branch of medicine that utilizes x-ray imagery to diagnose and treat diseases.
What is mAs in radiology?
mA (millamps) x Time (seconds) = mAs mA Tube Current The second control of the output of the x-ray tube is called the mA (milliamperage) control. This control determines how much current is allowed to flow through the filament which is the cathode side of the tube. If more current (and therefore more heating) is allowed to pass through the filament, more electrons will be available in the "space charge" for acceleration to the target and this will result in a greater flux of photons when the high voltage circuit is energized. The effect of the mA circuit is quite linear. If you want to double the number of "x" photons produced by the tube, you can do that by simply doubling the mA. Changing the number of photons produced will affect the blackness of the film but will not affect the film contrast. S Time The third control of the x-ray tube which is used for medical imaging is the exposure timer. This is usually denoted as an "S" (exposure time in seconds) and is combined with the mA control. The combined function is usually referred to as mAs or milliampere seconds so, if you wanted to give an exposure using 10 milliampere seconds you could use a 10 mA current with a 1.0 second exposure or a 20 mA current for a 0.5 second exposure or any combination of the two which would result in the number 10. Both of these factors and their combination affect the film in a linear way. That is, if you want to double film blackness you could just double the mAs.

How much money does a radiology technologist make?
Rural NM 45 to 50 k Ask someone at the reference desk of your local public library for the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It lists all kinds of information you would need to know,(including the salary) of just about any occupation you can think of. Answer form what my aunty has told me who is a radoiolagist ?45,ooo a year. Answer In college I researched that yearly pay is $45,000 Answer 40,000 a year depending on where you want to work Answer he makes 50,000 a year Answer The median expected salary for a Radiology tech is 50k Answer About 40k. Answer Radiology Tech's make around 50k a year. Other Radiologists, particularly Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologists, make loads more (but that's off-topic now, isn't it?) Alt Answer ___ technicians can expect minimum wage or slightly higher. More if actual skill- or knowledge use required. Answer- The average salary of radiologic technologists can be around $44,000 per annum. While a certified radilogist with bachelor's or master's degree can earn around $ 199,000 annually across the US.

What are the top radiology residency programs in California?
UCSF (Univ of CA at san francisco) is considered the top radiology program in CA. It is considered by many to be the most competitive (although not "the best") to get into in the country. I'm not sure what those previous programs listed were, but they were not radiology residency programs. Perhaps they were radiology technologist training programs. A radiologist is an M.D. who goes through 4 yrs undergrad, 4 years med school, 1 year general internship, 4 years residency and likely 1-3 years fellowship (14-16 yrs post high school) whereas a tech is a two yr program after high school (some prefer a 2-4 yr degree first though I believe).

How much money does a radiology technician earn?
The median expected salary for a typical Radiologic Technologist in the United States is $45,616. As of 2005, The American Society of Radiologic Technologists survey showed an average annual income of approx. $64k. Keep in mind Technologists and Technicians are two different entities. Technicians generally go to school for 6 months to a year and are limited in what they can do. They typically earn 37 to 40k yr. Technologists graduate from either 2 year or 4 year college programs and once certified, are unlimited in what they can do within the scope of radiology exams. These individuals can earn up to $70-80k yr. Some Technologists earn over $100k yr. with overtime and callbacks. (being on-call for emergencies). in San Antonio, a chain of hospitals start new grads at $17.75 hr. Of course, the more experience you have, the more pay you earn.
Are there any radiology class in the navy?
Yes - Hospital Corpsman are trained in radiology, as are Dental Technicians, if you're referring to X-Ray type radiology. If you're referring to nuclear radiology, all nuclear-capable and nuclear powered vessels require either Engineering personnel or Weapons personnel to be radiology qualified. For example, Nuclear EOD, decontamination procedures and cleanup is commonly taught to crews aboard such vessels.

What is the difference between radiology and radiography?
Radiology is the examination of the inner structure of opaque objects using X-rays or other penetrating radiation. In the radiation branch of medical science, radiology is the use of X-rays or other penetrating radiation for examination and/or treatment of medical conditions. Radiography is photography that uses other kinds of radiation than visible light to produce an image on a radiosensitive surface by radiation.
