Radiologic technologists, also known as “rad techs,” perform diagnostic imaging examinations using computerized equipment such as x‐rays and MRIs. They assist patients to be positioned correctly for the test procedure. They also maintain imaging equipment. Most radiologic technicians work in hospitals.
