Who We Are
We are the professional society for radiologic technologists and medical imaging professionals in Kansas. We are an affiliate society of the ASRT and serve to advocate for the medical imaging professionals in health policy, education, and advancing modalities.
The Kansas Society of X-Ray Technicians was founded in 1936. The name was officially changed on July 1, 1964, to the Kansas Society of Radiologic Technologists. Myrtle Coates, RT, and Eleanor Wellborn, RT, authored "History of X-Ray Technology in Kansas 1896-1963." Coates and Wellborn explained that a group of seven technicians, headed by Cora McJilton, RT, in Hutchinson-Wichita area, began toying with the idea of forming a Kansas state society to be affiliated with the national group, and began meetings where they made plans for organization, in the summer of 1936. By October of that year, their group had elected the first KSXT officers, and were hard at work framing a constitution and by-laws, necessary procedure before final affiliation with the ASXT. An application for affiliation resulted in acceptance on November 5, 1936. From this humble beginning the society has been driven by the philosophy of the founders to serve our members, the community, and patients.
We advocate for medical imaging and radiologic science professionals by advancing professional practice and educational standards and providing leadership in health policy.
