Becoming a certified Magnetic Resonance Imaging technologist will lead to a prestigious and rewarding career in high demand. You will work side-by-side with doctors on the front lines of the diagnostic process. There was a shortage of certified MRI technologists, and the COVID pandemic did more to highlight this deficit. An MRI exam is fundamental in not only the diagnosis of extreme pathology such as cancer but many other issues such as neurologic, orthopedic, and abdominal disorders. According to USA NEWS – before the pandemic, MRI Technologists’ salaries were $73,410 on average in 2019. The best-paid 25 percent earned $87,280 that year, while the lowest-paid 25 percent made $61,030. Due to the high demand, it is foreseeable that these numbers may increase as much as thirty percent by 2022.
