The most familiar use of the x-ray is the diagnosis of broken bones. Today's radiologic technology includes the use of radiation for diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Imaging techniques that use ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are growing rapidly. The U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Statistics, indicates that employment for radiologic technologists is expected to grow faster than average through the year 2016. Hospitals are the principal employers of radiologic technologists, but new opportunities now exist in clinics, physician offices, and diagnostic imaging centers.
