By Erin Register

From Sterling, Colorado, Justin Armstrong, 39, has been in the imaging field for 18 years. Armstrong has an associate’s degree of applied science in diagnostic imaging and is registered in X-ray and CT. He is currently the Banner Health Medical Imaging Senior Manager in Northern Colorado.

Armstrong was nominated as a “Rising Star” by Banner Imaging Services CEO Jason Theodre. ICE learned more about him in a question-and-answer interview.

Q: Why did you choose to get into this field?

A: I have an older brother who is in the medical imaging field. When I graduated high school, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and my brother asked me to do a visit to the X-ray school he attended. So, I did. Shortly after the visit, I knew X-ray was what I wanted to do. I got accepted to the X-ray program and started my career.

Q: What do you like most about your position?

A: I love being a leader. Patient care is always number one, and I felt when I was on the front lines, I always made the patient number one. Now, I’m able to pass that passion on to the technologists, and leading has been very rewarding for me. I also like the business side of the medical field. Learning and growing everyday makes my current role a great deal of fun.

Q: What interests you the most about the imaging field?

A: All of the technology interests me. From when I first started in X-ray and we had to develop film to where it is today keeps it fun and interesting.

Q: What has been your greatest accomplishment in your field thus far?

A: I would say starting from a front-line technologist in X-ray, to cross-training and CT/MRI, then to my current role as a senior manager is my biggest accomplishment. Also, being part of an organization that really focuses on growing their employees to their career aspirations is very beneficial. Being able to lead a patient-focused, engaged team is also at the top of my list.

Q: What goals do you have for yourself in the next five years?

A: I am just rolling with whatever happens. I’ve been a medical imaging leader for the past 10 years and really enjoy it. I am happy in my current role, but am open to wherever life takes me. •
