A radiologist assistant is an advanced-level radiologic technologist who enhances patient care by extending the capacity of the radiologist in the diagnostic imaging environment. The radiologist assistant is an ARRT-certified radiographer who has completed an advanced academic program encompassing a nationally recognized radiologist assistant curriculum and a radiologist-directed clinical preceptorship. With radiologist supervision, the radiologist assistant performs fluoroscopy and selected radiology procedures, patient assessment, patient management and initial evaluation of diagnostic images, but does not provide an official interpretation (final written report) as defined by the  ACR Standards for Communication: Diagnostic Radiology.
