A 35-year-old member asked:
What do you call an apparatus to read the x-ray or mri images?

Image reader: Radiographic reader
mri and x-rays are radiographic images, so i assume you call the apparatus, radiographic reader.
Radiologists are physicians that read radiographs, i assume one day we will have smart devices that can do the same.

Ha the doctor: Images from all our tests do not interpret themselves. There are specialists who have years of experience to read your images.
I have 28 years MRI experience with a dual MRI body fellowship and a senior member of the asnr.
