Although hospitals remain the primary employer of cardiovascular technologists and technicians and vascular technologists, employment is expected to grow more rapidly in physicians' offices and in medical and diagnostic laboratories. Employment in these healthcare settings is expected to increase because of a shift toward outpatient care whenever possible.
As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the need to diagnose medical conditionsósuch as blood clots and tumorsówith imaging technology will likely increase. Cardiovascular technologists and technicians and vascular technologists will continue to be needed to use and maintain the equipment needed for diagnosis and treatment
Job opportunities should be best for those who have multiple professional credentials and are trained to do a wide range of procedures. Technologists or technicians who are willing to move or to work irregular hours also should have better opportunities
