Becoming an MRI Technician in Georgia
How does a person know how much money you can make as an MRI tech and how long you have to go to school for it. The information below should help you to make a determination of whether this is the health career for you and some other needed job positions as well.
The Radiographer, as magnetic resonance technologists are called, will be a needed profession as long as people get sick and need to be diagnosed with what is ailing them. The MRI has become very popular in recent years, and with the bad publicity on CAT scans because of the tremendous amount of radiation CAT scans produce, doctors are doing more MRI’s these days.
Another advantage to going to school for radiography is that you can break off into other health career professions if you choose to do so in the future. The Georgia Ultrasound Technician is a very demanded health care job position, as well as the Georgia Dental Hygienist and Georgia Surgical Technician.
The pay for the Georgia MRI Tech is very good and usually ranges from $40,000 to $63,000 per year. This job position as well as the other allied health career positions mentioned above are all predicted to grow faster than average by the US Labor Dept of Statistics through the year 2018.
