User-Submitted Answers
1.
First I would get my priorities in order and write out a plan. Secondly I would come up with a game with a great prize for the winner to not only get employees inviolved but motivated also. These in turn would boost the morale. The internet is the answer to many inadequate recources. If it cannot be found there I would search each dept manager until I gathered enough insight and recources to get the job done.
2.
I would try my best to complete the task and focus on me and the task instead of the negative surroundings.
3.
I would get a plan sorted, follow company procedure, get staff involve to assist, gather other resources from the internet.

5.
Be more careful and increase my efficincy at work.
6.
Make the best of what I have and find a way to make everything work and try to make the staff stays positive and bring in humor.

The key to this is good organizational skills. The first thing is to prioritize work and then assign staff to these tasks. In order to raise morale, one must speak to staff and see what the issues are and try to address these issues.
8.
I would speak to my immediate supervisor to see what they might need from me to help improve the situation. I would stay positive with my peers so I would not be contributing to the low employee moral. Overtime may be necessary in order to meet deadlines on time. I would also look for possible solutions to propose to management.

Make the best adapt, ask for more resources, find out reasons for lpw morale and look for ways to improve them.

In such case, I will work diligently and try to finish as much as work I possibly can. Team-work is important, but sometimes you need to put on that extra effort to get the job finished on time. In the end, all that matters is a task well completed.

User-Submitted Answers

While there will always be a need for radiology, I see areas specializing. I think it will be necessary for techs to have training in multiple modalities to remain efficient. One thing that appeals to me about radiology is the opportunity to train in multiple modalities and practice in those areas.

Radiology is following suit with most other health care services. Technologically, there will be rapid advancements in imaging equipment that is more efficient and accurate.

About Radiology

August 18th, 2017

Radiology technicians are allied healthcare workers. These highly trained professionals perform diagnostic imaging examinations at the request of physicians. Sometimes they also administer radiation therapy treatments. Radiology technicians have extensive knowledge of anatomy, examination techniques, and basic patient care as well as radiation safety and equipment protocols.
To work as a radiology technician you must complete a 2 or 4-year relevant educational program at an accredited institute and sit for a national certification exam. Advanced studies are required to specialize in specific imaging techniques. Continued education is necessary to keep up with advancements in diagnostic technology.
Be prepared for a rigor interview as employers are extremely careful when hiring radiology technicians. They will ask you questions to assess your theoretical knowledge and practical application of various diagnostic procedures. They will also want to test your communication skills and your interpersonal skills. A quick look through mock interview questions for radiology technicians will help you to be better prepared for any questions that come your way at the interview.
