Is there a future in a Radiologic Technology career?

The median annual wage of radiologic technologists was $52,210 in May 2008. Employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase by about 17 percent from 2008—2018, faster than the average for all occupations. As the population grows and ages, there will be an increasing demand for diagnostic imaging. In addition to diagnosis, diagnostic imaging is used to monitor the progress of disease treatment. With the increasing success of medical technologies in treating disease, diagnostic imaging will increasingly be needed to monitor progress of treatment.

Why choose a career in Radiologic Technology?

A radio. . .what? A lot of people do not know what a Radiologic Technologist does. It's nothing to do with radar and everything to do with investigating why people are ill and treating cancer. Radiologic Technologists are at the heart of modern medicine; without Radiologic Technologist, modern healthcare would collapse. Without detailed images of what is happening inside of the human body, treatments would not be as effective and valuable time would be lost.
