“Reading Hospital is always looking into new and improved technology to improve patient care. Since starting my career at Reading Hospital, I have gone from film to CR cassettes to digital. It has been amazing to see the advances as the field has grown! I tell the students that my job is better than watching TV because you get to see things you would see on the Discovery Channel right in front of you!”
