•   Radiation therapy Machine
          X-Ray Machine

• The machines used to take X-ray pictures
  produce X-rays with energies of around
  120,000 electron volts. The X-rays used for
  cancer treatment are much more powerful,
  with energies of between 2 million and 20
  million electron volts...
CT Scanner

  cavity .
Radiation Therapy Machine

• Both internal and external radiation therapy
  can be used as: Curative therapy , where the
  goal is to eliminate all signs of cancer.
Some medical technology jobs are:

• Radiologist
• Biomedical Equipment technician
• Pharmacologist
Biomedical Equipment Technician

• Biomedical Engineering services on site at a
  hospital, including preventative maintenance,
  repairs and calibrations, on assigned medical
