Radiographers produce x-ray films (radiographs) of parts of the human body to assist a physician in the diagnosis of disease and trauma. Experienced radiographers may perform more complex imaging tests, such as CT, MRI, mammography, angiography and surgical procedures.
Job prospects are best for persons trained in multiple disciplines such as radiography and CT, MRI, or ultrasound. More than half of jobs for technologists are in hospitals; the rest being in physicians' offices and clinics, including diagnostic imaging centers.
