Join us in celebrating Medical Radiation Technologists (MRT) week! Annually on the week of November 8th, we celebrate the incredible work of our MRTs who play such an integral role in providing exceptional health care at Interior Health. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to our MRTs who continue to work hard as a team, especially during the pandemic, to deliver the highest level of patient care.
“On behalf of Medical Imaging Senior Leadership, I’d like to wish everyone a happy Medical Radiation Technologist (MRT) Week! This has been a very difficult year but our MRT’s stepped up to continue providing excellent service to our patients. In our patient survey conducted in Nov of 2019, 97% of the responses rated our services as Excellent or Very Good. The majority of the comments complimented the professionalism and caring of our Imaging employees. Thanks for your dedication and hard work!”– Tim – Program Director of Medical Imaging
“As we deal with the new realities of COVID our MRT’s have had to wear additional PPE, ensure physical distancing, and implement enhanced cleaning measures between patients. In spite of this additional work, the number of patients we are seeing is approaching, or even exceeding, pre-COVID levels in most areas.”Tim – Program Director of Medical Imaging
Medical radiation technologists perform a variety of radiological imaging techniques, including X-ray, fluoroscopy, CT scanning, interventional radiography, mammography, nuclear medicine technologists, and operating room studies. They produce quality images used in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of patients. Their dedication and knowledge is a crucial part of our team at Interior Health.
“MRT week is a wonderful time to celebrate our hardworking technologists in multiple modalities and recognize their skills that help patients get the care they need and possibly help save their lives.”Erin – MRT – Mammography and X-Ray
The Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) leads many creative initiatives to acknowledge the crucial work of MRTs and promote awareness around their profession. This year, they have encouraged more virtual celebrations that you can participate in, such as a video contest to feature MRTs.
“MRTs deliver professional imaging and radiation-related treatment services with a caring touch, allowing patients to fully benefit from the latest in medical diagnostic and treatment technology.”– Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT)

I have been working as an MRT in both Mammography and X-Ray for almost 10 years. It is such a rewarding career knowing you are an essential link in a patient’s healthcare. During this time of COVID, it has been trying, but a great opportunity to learn how to improve our skills and come together as a team with everyone around the hospital to ensure the safety of our patients and our fellow colleagues.Erin – MRT – Mammography and X-Ray
