Hi, my name is Joel Kenfield. I'm the administrator for Capital Cardiovascular in Austin, Texas. I'd like to talk for a few moments about what a Nuclear Cardiology Technician is? Essentially a Nuclear Cardiology Technician helps supervise a Nuclear Cardiology test. And when I say supervise, essentially they're capturing the images from the Nuclear Cardio Perfusion camera. Escorting the patients, helping them navigate through the process. Supervising their stress elements as they go through the kind of, second stage of the heart test. And then helping the patients on the follow up side. Education wise, make sure they have the needs. Processing the studies, preparing them for the cardiologists to read. And essentially, more or less running the department on the HR side. And the organizational scheduling side. In a nutshell, that is what a cardiology nuclear technologist does.
