Employment

Major employers:

Outlook

Demand will grow steadily for this occupation. This is due in part to an increasing number of older people. This population is more likely to become ill or injured. Thus, they will require more medical testing. In addition, diagnostic imaging is increasingly being used to not only diagnose illness, but to also monitor treatment.

Many new jobs will be created at hospitals. However, employment will grow most rapidly in medical offices, clinics, and diagnostic imaging centers. Job prospects are best for those with certifications in the field.
