Is this career for me?
Mechanical and technological aptitude is important as is the desire to help people by providing respectful, competent, and compassionate care. Medical Imaging technologists are part of the healthcare team and are required to interact with patients, families, physicians, and other medical personnel. Physical stamina is important because technologists are on their feet for long periods of time and may be required to help lift persons with disabilities.
Careers in this field are highly paid and highly sought after. Members of these professions typically work in hospitals, imaging centers, clinics, doctor's offices, mobile imaging companies, education, research, or enjoy careers in technical sales and support of medical instrumentation and supplies.
