The Technologist Function in Fields Related to Radiology: Tasks in Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Ultrasound. Research Report No. 9; Relating Technologist Tasks in Diagnostic Radiology, Ultrasound and Radiation Therapy. Research Report No. 10.
The two research reports included in this document describe the application of the Health Services Mobility Study (HSMS) task analysis method to two technologist functions and examine the interrelationships of these tasks with those in diagnostic radiology. (The HSMS method includes processes for using the data for designing job ladders, for developing curriculum objectives, and for constructing evaluation instruments and proficiency tests.) The first report (no. 9) presents eighty-six new task descriptions at the aide, technician, and technologist level in two developing occupational specialties, radiation therapy and diagnostic ultrasound. The report describes how the tasks were developed and how to read them. Also included are listings that arrange the tasks by function and an index of tasks by code number. The second report (no. 10), covering the tasks in report no. 9 and a previous HSMS report which relates technologist tasks in diagnostic radiology (no. 7), indicates what skill and knowledge data and task analysis show about the interrelationships of the tasks in diagnostic radiology, ultrasound technology, and radiation therapy. The report also describes the skill and knowledge overlaps across specialties and the relative job levels to which the tasks can be assigned. (The four volumes of research report no. 7 are available as ERIC documents ED 129 977, ED 130 077-078, and ED 130 131-132. (BM)
