As our population grows and gets older, the demand for diagnostic imaging will increase because, unfortunately, with age comes a greater incidence of illness and injury. That’s why the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics has forecast that employment of Radiologic Technologists will increase by about 28 percent from 2010 to 2020; that’s faster than the average for all occupations.**
