Radiology Assistant vs Nurse Practitioner vs Physician Assistant

According to  Journal of American College of  Radiology 2012 Apr;9(4):270-4, the average curriculum for the Radiologist Assistant "includes a core education that is comparable with the physician assistant and nurse practitioner curricula, with the exception of prescriptive authority and health promotion and disease prevention. The RA curriculum adds instruction in radiobiology, radiation safety, radiologic procedures, fluoroscopic unit operation and safety, and radiopharmaceuticals."
