Decker, Sola (2006) On Being a Radiographer: Identity Construction and the Radiographer. In: Narrative, Memory & Knowledge: Representations, Aesthetics, Contexts. University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, pp. 159-164.
Abstract

Radiography is a profession that is driven by sociological factors and a rapidly
changing technological environment.
Using oral history methods, the career history of diagnostic radiographers
who have experienced technological and sociological changes in the practice of
radiography is explored.
The resulting narrative identifies radiographers, consciously or
unconsciously engaging in the act of construction and deconstruction of their
professional practice in an attempt to create professional identity.
Using findings from the ongoing research the paper will look at the
struggle for professional identity in a constantly changing work environment.
The potential role of narrative research in the development of the profession is
highlighted.
