Radiologic Sciences students and faculty at Northwestern State University’s Cenla campus in Alexandria observed Radiologic Technology Week by presenting an informational display in the atrium of Rapides Regional Medical Center.

Students led by Garrett Draughn of Leesville, created a computer presentation, as well as display boards and large panels that represented the different modalities of radiologic sciences that were dispersed throughout the first floor of the hospital. A display of antique implements such as tubes, glass plate X-rays and obsolete instruments contrasted with informational presentations on modern digital technology related to sonography, radiation therapy, bone densitometry, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and nuclear medicine, according to Kendall Delacerda, instructor.

The presentation was coordinated through Northwestern State’s College of Nursing and Allied Health, which had similar events planned to take place at the College’s Shreveport Nursing Center. Radiologic Technology Week is observed annually by industry professionals the week of the anniversary of the discovery of X-rays by German scientist Wilhelm Roentgen.
