Medical technology refers to the diagnostic or therapeutic application of science and technology to improve the management of health conditions. Technologies may encompass any means of identifying the nature of conditions and intervening with devices, pharmacological, biological or other methods to increase life span and/or improve the quality of life (taken from Wikipedia).

From the same resources,
Although medical technology is not a well known field, the Medical Technologist is a vital part of the healthcare team. The medical technologist provides a "report" on the internal condition of the patient as well as prepares and dispenses life saving blood products.

Medical Technologists must hold a four-year bachelor's degree with a major in Medical Technology (Clinical Laboratory Science) or a four-year degree in a life science, in which case certification from an accredited training program is also required.
