Siouxland Libraries Receives National Grant To Highlight Science Advances in Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Procedures

Siouxland Libraries is one of a select group selected to take part in National Radiologic Technology Week®, an annual event that recognizes the vital work of the nation’s medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals. It received a grant from the ASRT National Library Partnership to purchase books that focus on radiologic technology’s role in health care and society.

Sponsored by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists, the annual celebration takes place during the week that includes November 8 to commemorate the discovery of the x-ray by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on November 8, 1895. This year’s celebration is November 4 to 10, 2018.

As part of the event, Siouxland Libraries’ Downtown Library will feature a book display that highlights the history of the radiologic sciences, technology advances from the past century, and information about radiologic technology.

ASRT is the world’s largest radiologic science organization, representing more than 155,000 radiologic technologists, the professionals who perform medical imaging and radiation therapy procedures.

In addition to Siouxland Libraries, library systems in more than a dozen states will host displays during National Radiologic Technology Week. Follow their progress and see the displays at #ASRTLovesLibraries on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
