A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Medical Techician Collection - The Medical Technologist performs a broad range of laboratory tests. These can include simple blood tests as well as much more complex tests to uncover diseases such as AIDS, diabetes, and cancer. The MTs are also responsible for confirming the accuracy of test results and reporting laboratory findings to the doctor or pathologist. There is a certain amount of urgency in their work in that the results of many tests are needed very quickly. Speed and accuracy are all important.
