An X-ray technician, also known as a radiologic technologist, uses X-rays and other types of radiation to take pictures of a patient’s internal anatomy, usually under the guidance of a radiologist. They may also use other diagnostic technologies, such as injecting radioactive dyes into a patient’s bloodstream. The abilities to work high-tech equipment and offer personal attention to patients are assets in this field. You can receive the necessary training in radiologic technology in as little as one year of technical college or as long as four, depending on your prior experience in healthcare. The U.S. Armed Forces also offers training in radiologic technology.
