INA, Ill. (Nov. 6, 2018) - Rend Lake College Radiologic Technology students celebrate National Radiologic Technology Week (NRTW) by delivering cookie cakes to area hospitals. The sweet treats are a thank you from the students to their clinical sites for the hands-on training they receive throughout the semester.
NRTW is celebrated annually during the week of Nov. 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on that date in 1895. The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety.
