Created by Medical Radiation Technologists (MRTs) for MRTs, the Manitoba Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (MAMRT) was incorporated in 1956, but had its beginnings in Manitoba long before - in 1929 - when William (Bill) Doern (1902-2003) and Claude James Bodle (1886-1980) formed the very first association in Canada for those engaged in the then infant science of radiological technique.
The MAMRT is the professional voice of MRTs, a profession that now encompasses four distinct disciplines: Radiological (X-Ray) Technology, Nuclear Medicine Technology, MRI Technology and Radiation Therapy.
As of January 1, 2021, the breakdown of Registered Technologists, by discipline/specialty was:
Radiological (X-Ray) Technology [RTR]: 574 Members
MRI Technology [RTMR]: 103 Members
Radiation Therapy [RTT]: 76 Members
Nuclear Medicine Technology [RTNM]: 47 Members
