Radiologic Technology is used by the Radiological Technologists (RT) who are called to modify the practical adjustment of the radiography and the Computed Tomography (CT) scanner examinations due to pandemic of corona virus disease 19 (COVID-19). This article aims to inform the RT by describing specifically the personal protective equipment (PPE), the appropriate decontamination means, the protective techniques for stable or non-stable equipment, the advice for patient management inside the radiology units and the patient ward and also rational distribution of spaces and staff members, mainly to the hospital that receive COVID-19 patients. RT move between medium and high risk zones and constitute units of potential in-hospital disease spread. Protective measures have to be strictly respected and working spaces have to be modified to ensure the personal and collective security, according always to the current conditions. Key points • RT constitute potentially units of in-hospital spreading. • Equipment protection and staff managing is required. • PPE need to be strictly respected
