Radiography Bursaries for 2023
Radiography is an imaging technique using X-rays, gamma rays, or similar ionizing radiation and non-ionizing radiation to view the internal form of an object. Applications of radiography include medical radiography (“diagnostic” and “therapeutic”) and industrial radiography.
It is used to diagnose or treat patients by recording images of the internal structure of the body to assess the presence or absence of disease, foreign objects, and structural damage or anomaly.
During a radiographic procedure, an x-ray beam is passed through the body. A portion of the x-rays are absorbed or scattered by the internal structure and the remaining x-ray pattern is transmitted to a detector so that an image may be recorded for later evaluation. The recoding of the pattern may occur on film or through electronic means.
Radiographers works with medical imaging equipment (X-rays) to create images of patients that physicians use to diagnose injuries and diseases. Radiographers are different from radiologists – radiographers create diagnostic images for interpretation by another medical professional, while radiologists are usually involved in both the imaging and interpretation stage.
Radiographers will start out earning around R238 000 per annum if they have little to no experience, while those with between 1 and 4 years of experience can expect a salary of R266 000 per annum.
