What EXACTLY do Radiation Therapists do?

I’m really looking into going to school for Radiation Therapy but am not quite sure Exactly everything they do. Do they use needles in any way? Do they just use machines? Any information anyone has on this would be very helpful!

    When someone needs a picture of their bones, such as if they may suspect a bone fracture, the Rad. Therapist only take radioactive machines that see thru your body, and take a picture of your bones! No. they dont use needles, but start learning the names and locations for all the bones in the human body, also learn medical terminology for the different positions the Doctors are going to request these pictures for, example lumbar sacral spine is the Back u need to take X-ray s of.
    Get prepared u have a lot to learn!
