The following industries employed a majority of radiologic technologists in 2010:
|Hospitals; state, local, and private||61%|
|Offices of physicians||21%|
|Medical and diagnostic laboratories||9%|
|Outpatient care centers||3%|
Although radiation hazards exist in this occupation, they are minimized by the use of protective lead aprons, gloves, and other shielding devices, and by instruments that monitor exposure to radiation. Radiologic technologists wear badges measuring radiation levels in the radiation area, and detailed records are kept on their cumulative lifetime dose.
Most radiologic technologists work full time. Because imaging is needed
in emergency situations, some radiologic technologists work evenings,
weekends, or on call.
