Employee Profiles: Diana Machmeier, MRI Technologist
Diana Machmeier is an MRI Technologist who works for UW Medical Foundation.
As an MRI Technologist in the Department of Medical Imaging at the 1 S. Park Clinic, I work closely with radiologists to produce detailed images of bones, soft tissues and blood vessels for diagnosis. These images give physicians information they need to plan a course of treatment
I am very fortunate to work with a dedicated, hard-working group of doctors, technologists, assistants and support staff. MRI is a small department within our Radiology department. We try very hard to make our patients' experience with us as stress-free and comfortable as possible.
Patients often come to us anxious, apprehensive or in pain. It is rewarding when they thank us for making their experience less frightening or more comfortable. Our goal is to get high-quality scans and this is best accomplished when the patients are calm and assured.
I enjoy my job and find it is very satisfying to know I have played a vital role in a patient's diagnosis and treatment process.
