Radiologic technologists perform
imaging tests such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, and magnetic
resonance imaging (MRI). They are also called radiographers. They work under the direction of a radiologist, who
interprets the images to diagnose illness.
Training programs in radiography lead to
a certificate, associate degree, or bachelor's degree. State requirements for
licensing vary. And radiologic technologists may be registered through the
American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
