Careers & Outcomes

Employment Trends

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the demand for radiologic and MRI technicians to grow by 7% through 2029, as an aging population increases the need for medical imaging as a diagnostic tool. Graduates of the radiologic technology program often work in the X-ray department in hospitals, clinics, or mobile units. Radiologic technologists can also work in other areas, such as cath labs, electrophysiology, interventional radiology, radiation therapy, mammography, or performing CT or MRI scans.  

Career Paths

  • Radiologic technologist 
  • Radiographer

During my time at the University of Mary in the Radiologic Technology program, I have grown immensely as a person; and not just mentally or practically, but spiritually and maturely as well. I recommend Radiologic Technology because the degree offers multiple roads into medicine upon graduation and it gives flexibility for future career options and scientific endeavors.
