Radiologic Technologists and Technicians
Radiologic technologists work in medical settings and perform x-rays to assist physicians in diagnosing medical ailments. They prepare patients for procedures, adjust imaging equipment, position patients and shield them from excess radiation.
Technologists typically hold associate’s degrees in radiography, though some hold certificates or bachelor’s degrees. Most states mandate that they become licensed, which often requires graduating from a formal training program and earning certification.
