  • Check with your local community college. Also check with local hospitals, as their requirements may vary.

  • im in radiology, why dont you try for ultrasound, the technologists get paid more, or cat scan, CT will also do xrays at some facilities. they are all about 2 years, some of that time is done at a facility where you will learn to scan patients. good luck.
