Radiology nurses

They are patient advocates that provide instruction and obtain a medical history. Radiology nurses are liaisons between the family, anesthesia team and technologists. They provide work together with other nursing areas to improve quality and safety. They administer medications, start IVs, and access central lines/ports, to allow a child to receive drugs or other fluids into the bloodstream.
