90 years of the MAMRT : Celebrating our past, Looking to our future


2019 marks the 90th anniversary of the Manitoba Association of Medical Radiation Technologists! The very first association to form in Canada for “X-Ray Technicians”, as they were then known, was formed in Winnipeg, by William (Bill) Doern and Claude Bodle, in 1929. The profession of Medical Radiation Technology, as it is now known, encompasses four distinct specialties in the related disciplines of Radiological, MRI, and Nuclear Medicine Technology, as well as Radiation Therapy.
