X-Ray Tech Travel Jobs

As an X-ray Tech, you’ll be the one of the go-to professionals when it comes to performing diagnostic imaging examinations. This job requires a significant amount of precision, safety precautions, and technical knowledge in order to perform these examinations properly. X-ray techs must know the proper ways to position a patient’s body in order to capture an accurate image - this could include lifting patients with limited mobility. Once the patient is positioned, a series of other measurements need to be taken in order to administer the minimum amount of radiation in order to produce the radiograph needed.

Being able to explain x-ray procedures to patients and help them to understand the process is a skill most techs need to have. This job requires someone to be on their feet for long periods of time, as well as a keen attention to detail. Most importantly, X-ray techs need to follow strict regulations for radiation exposure in terms of patient safety and their own health. Wearing the proper protective gear and keeping a log of radiation exposure are extremely necessary in order to maintain a safe workplace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, X-ray techs and radiologic professionals receive a median annual wage of $58,120 with a projected 9% growth until 2024.

Education Requirements for X-Ray Tech Travel Jobs

Most commonly, career X-ray techs usually start by receiving an associate degree in radiography. Many two-year programs can be found through community colleges, allied health organizations, and technical schools. These programs educate students with time spent in the classroom, learning about the physics of X-ray and radiations, as well as general medical science and becoming familiar with common usages of this technology. Beyond this, there is a great deal of setting up X-ray machines, spending time in clinical labs, simulating patient procedures, processing X-ray images, and gaining field experience.

X-ray techs may also choose to undertake certificate programs in radiography, which are more likely to be offered by hospitals and other health care institutions. Although a bachelor’s program will usually train students on several types of imaging technologies such as CT and MRI, graduates of a certificate program can still work as X-ray technicians. The single most important accrediting body for this field remains available through The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
