Knee-jerk reaction? MRI inspires rad tech to pursue career

Radiology as a field is powered by the passion of its professionals. For one registered technologist, that desire to pursue a career in the field was sparked by a tweaked knee that required an MRI.

Dan Navarroza with Health First in Rockledge, Florida, shared his story with Florida Today.

"About 20 years ago, before I had known anything about the field of radiology, I had to get an MRI of my knee," said Navarroza. "It was my first MRI, and without that experience, I would not be where I am today. Seeing the machine and what it did truly amazed me. I was immediately interested in the mechanics of the magnet and how it could produce such detailed images of the anatomy."
