Greg Yardley , MSRS, RT(R), CBDT
Greg Yardley MSRS, RT(R), CBDT started as a radiologic technologist in 2007 and has worked in a rural hospital, trauma 1 center, medical clinic, and urgent care. He has experience with screen and film, CR, and DR radiology equipment. He also has extensive fluoroscopic and C-arm experience. Greg's bone density experience consists of running the day-to-day operations of an Osteoporosis Center where he performed and analyzed over 3000 DXA scans a year. This job led him to his current career which is a researcher and Radiology Technologist for KBR on the human, health, performance contract in the NASA Bone Mineral Lab and medical clinic.rnGreg is registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.rnHe is also registered as a Bone Density Technologist and an active member of the International society of Clinical Densitometry.rn
