A career in the radiologic sciences

Radiologic Science is a profession combining advanced technology and human compassion. Technologists use their knowledge of physics and human anatomy and physiology to create permanent medical images. This is a profession requiring dependability, maturity, and a caring nature. Radiologic services are offered in various settings such as hospitals, health care facilities, physician’s offices, mobile imaging companies, industrial plants, research centers, government agencies, commercial sales, and marketing.

A person educated in this profession may specialize in their own area, as listed below or pursue careers as educators, researchers, consultants, or administrators. Constant growth in this field has created many new and exciting career opportunities. There are several choices to make when considering a career in radiologic technology.

Reid Hospital’s radiography program will educate students in a hospital environment. Upon graduation and passing the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination, our graduates may then specialize in a wide variety of modalities such as Computerized Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Nuclear Medicine, Sonography/ Ultrasound, Interventional Radiology, Mammography, and Radiation Oncology.

Students learn all examinations performed on the skeletal anatomy. They will have opportunity to learn additional skills to make them more marketable such as, venipuncture, EKG, basic lab procedures, vital signs, and patient assessment.

Salaries vary nationwide and are reflective of training, education, and experience. In this particular area, full-time entry level radiographers make $35,000-40,000 annually.  Employment opportunities have been affected by the economy; however, most graduates find the job market better than with most other professions.

Our radiography program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT),  which requires public access to Program Effectiveness Data.  Reid's data may be validated on the JRCERT website:  www.jrcert.org

So, are you considering a career in the radiologic sciences? If so, ask yourself:

  • Why do I want to become a radiologic professional?
  • Do I have enough concern and emotional strength to bear people's pain, even when they are at their worst? Do I retain my composure when everyone around me appears to be losing theirs?
  • How effective am I in solving technical problems?
  • Am I a "natural" in the courses required by this program? Will I enjoy these courses and recognize that they are basic to advanced professional credentials?
  • Do I mind working some nights, emergency calls and weekend and holiday hours?
  • What sort of study and work habits do I have? Am I able to maintain a commitment to something when its novelty wears off?

Your candid responses might help you determine  whether a career in the radiologic sciences is a good option for you. If you do possess the intellectual and emotional traits necessary in this profession, this website might be helpful.
