Xray Technician: Is This Career For Me? April 23 Rob Havenstein Rams Jersey , 2013 | Author: Antonio Noriega | Posted in Education
When it comes to providing quality diagnostic imaging services, an x-ray technician is the specialist you can count on anytime of the day. Also known as radiographers, x-ray technicians use advanced x-ray equipment and others like computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in order to produce images of specific parts of the body, which will be utilized by doctors in helping them make the correct diagnosis and treatment recommendation.

On a typical day, an x-ray technician helps prepare patients for undergoing scanning and ensuring their safety especially since x-ray equipment emits considerable amounts of radiation. They make sure exposed areas of the patient’s body are protected from radiation by making use of protective gear such as lead shields. They also align x-ray equipment at the precise height and angle over the specific area of the patient’s body.

An x-ray technician and radiologic technologist are two different job descriptions despite them working in the same department. A radiologic technologist undergoes more comprehensive training and therefore is qualified to perform more complex tasks. In any case, both of them will have to comply with a physician’s orders, and observe safety precautions when operating x-ray equipment. An x-ray may also be assigned clerical work such as recording patient history and preparing work schedules.

Education and training is a must for anyone who wishes to start a career as an x-ray technician. A 2-year Associate’s Degree in Radiologic Technology is the program of choice of many when it comes to this career. Many schools, colleges, and universities offer training programs in Radiologic Technology, particularly those that have received accreditation from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

After graduation from your training program, it is also a good idea to apply for voluntary certification as an x-ray technician. Certification is administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Majority of employers nowadays prefer hiring x-ray technicians who have acquired certification since it gives a sense of confidence that the applicant is proficient and competent in his chosen field.

Due to the increasing number of population and the advancements in diagnostic imaging technology, the career of an x-ray technician is also expected to experience growth in the next few years. One can expect a salary of about $35,000 to $70,000, dictated only by the industry you work in and other significant factors. Job opportunities are pretty much overwhelming at medical and diagnostic laboratories.
