If you’re searching for a technically driven career in healthcare, look no further than MRI technologist positions. MRI technologists use cutting-edge technology to create three-dimensional images for diagnostic purposes.
The goal of an MRI technologist is to produce a clear image of a designated body part. In order to succeed at this, MRI technologists must carefully position patients in order to get the best picture and be able to recognize when a good image has been taken.
Although MRI technologists generate the images, they must also prepare patients for MRIs. This includes making sure the patient has no metal on his body, which can interfere with the image the MRI produces. Another component of preparing patients is reassuring them and calming their fears, as some patients are claustrophobic.
Becoming an MRI technologist requires training. Most MRI technologist jobs require at least an associate’s degree, but many companies will accept completion of a comparable military training program. Some MRI technologists have bachelor’s degrees, which coincides with better pay and faster advancement.
The Bureau of Labor and Statistics projects MRI technologist jobs to grow at a rate of 28% between 2010 and 2020, which is much faster than most jobs. To find out more about the MRI technologist jobs in your area, visit ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs today.
