Radiology technicians operate X-ray and other imaging machines. When deciding what king of gift to purchase for a radiology technician, you might want to consider following an X-ray theme.
Look for shirts and sweatshirts with a life-size X-ray view of a skeleton. These have images of the arm bones on the arms of the shirt and the rib cage in the middle of the chest. Science museum gift shops and internet speciality clothing stores sell these shirts and sweatshirts.
Radiologists use X-ray markers to indicate the side of the body shown in the image by placing a marker with an "R" or "L" on it, indicating the right or left side of the body. Look online for customised X-ray markers, which come in a variety of shapes and can include the radiology technician's initials. For a veterinarian radiology technician, look for markers in the shapes of a dog bone or paw print. Football helmet-shaped markers can be ideal gifts for those specialising in sports medicine.
Look for a book featuring X-ray images of everyday items other than people. Every day radiology techs look at images of bones, but rarely do they get a chance to see the inner workings of other things from an X-ray's perspective. Shop at speciality bookstores in the medical or arts sections or look on the internet.
Rather than giving a present one day out of the year, offer the radiology tech in your life a subscription to a professional publication that he will receive several times over the year. Look for radiology publications including Radiology Today and Radiographics, both of which can be subscribed to through their respective websites.
