A radiographer (also known by radiologic technologist) is a highly trained professional who is capable of performing imaging diagnostics and radiologic procedures requested by a doctor. The chief role of the radiographer is to make certain that the patient and other staff members are always safe and experience as little as possible exposure to the x-ray and imaging equipment. In the field of radiology, specialties diverge onto many different paths including the Diagnostic Medical Sonographer who uses ultrasonic waves to make images of the internal organs, Computed Tomography Technologist who produces cross-sectioned images for diagnosing illness and injury, among others.

According to the AMA, those who have recently completed a radiography program can expect to make $41,612 annually, on average. However, with the wide variety of specialties available, like CT Tech and mammography, salaries can soar to nearly $62,000. Also, those who become certified MRI technologist will be paid more than those who are not certified through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), like x-ray technicians. If you'll be looking for work in an urban or metropolitan area, you can expect to make more than those in a more rural setting. And, as with most professions, the more experience you gain the more you can expect to make in your chosen profession.
