X-Ray technology has been an important way to diagnose damage to bones and hard tissue for decades, and the market for x-ray technicians and professionals in other medical imaging fields is booming along with the entire medical industry. Applications of x-ray and other medical imaging technologies like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT), have diversified and an expertise in using a particular machine is a very marketable skill now. These sites showcase the diverse uses of medical imaging tech, especially x-ray, and the many professional positions for those who are trained in using x-ray machines. There are even a few artists who use x-ray in their art to illustrate the wide variety of uses this amazing technology has grown into over the years.

Radiography & Radiology

Radiology encompasses uses of radiation-based technologies for both medical imaging and treatment purposes. A radiologist frequently employs one or more x-ray technicians to actually shoot images which the radiologist and other doctors can interpret and use to make a diagnosis.
