According to the U. S. Department of Labor, employment of radiologic technologists is projected to grow 21 percent through 2022 – faster than the average for all occupations. As the population grows older, there will be an increase in medical conditions, such as breaks and fractures caused by osteoporosis, which can require imaging procedures to diagnose them.

An associate’s degree is the most common educational path for radiologic technologists. Technologists must be licensed or certified in some states, and the requirements vary by state.
