4 Years Undergrad + 4 Years Medical School + 1 Year Internship (Transitional, Medical, or Surgical Residency) + 4 Years Radiology Residency + an Optional Fellowship 1-3 years. So, 13 years minimum, 16 for an extended interventional fellowship
After completing medical school prerequisites (typically a bachelor's degree in Biology or chemistry) , Diagnostic radiologists must complete four years of medical school (M.D.) or the alternative, osteopathic school (D.O.) plus a five year of post-graduate training (residency). The first year of residency is a preliminary year in medicine, surgery or both, after which a four-year diagnostic radiology residency follows. During residency, both oral and written national examinations must be passed for board certification in diagnostic radiology. There are two separate written examinations required for certification by the American Board of Radiology, one covering the physics of medical imaging which is usually taken at the beginning of the second or third year, and a second covering clinical diagnostic imaging knowledge which is usually taken at the beginning of the third or fourth year. Both written exams must be passed before being eligible to take the oral examination, which is typically taken at the end of the fourth year. Many hospitals consider certification by the American Board of Radiology and by the American Osteopathic Board of Radiology to be nearly equivalent.
After completion of residency, radiologists may choose to either practice or enter into a fellowship program in a radiologic subspecialty (such as abdominal CT, MRI, musculoskeletal imaging, interventional radiology, neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, etc.). Fellowship training programs typically last between one-to-two years.
Radiology is currently considered a highly competitive field. Radiologists generally enjoy good compensation as well as a good balance between time required at work and time spent away from work. The field is rapidly expanding due to advances in computer technology which is closely linked to modern imaging.
To become a radiologist at least eight years of school is required. Three of those being at medical school.
4 years B.A.

how many years in college does it take to become a diagnostic radiologist noninvasive?
A lot longer for you than someone who knows how to spell 'technician'. Sorry bud :)
If you go to medical school, and become an MD, yes.
None. You don't become a radiologist by going to school. First you need to become a licensed medical doctor by going to a four year medical school, then you take one year as an intern and another 2-3 years to become a radiologist by training in a hospital
What are some job skills that is needed to become a Radiologist?
Credit hours have nothing to do with becoming a radiologist. A radiologist is a physician - you must go to medical school and complete a 5 year residency.
One can become a radiologist by earning relevant certificates or an associate's degree or a bachelor's degree in the field of radiography. An associate's degree in radiography is the most common path to become a radiologist. If you would like to go to medical school and become a radiologist, you should study premed subjects, such as biology.
there are many classes that you need to take :) have fun on your journey :)
it depends on where you go to undergraduate school and medical school...however, you can expect to spend anywhere from $80,000 to over $150,000 to become a radiologist. As well, you will spend about 13 years in college to become a radiologist.
I was unable to find any books on how to become a radiologist. You can find websites like http://blogs.payscale.com/salarystories/2007/02/radiologist.html or http://www.thebestdegrees.org/how-to-become-a-radiologist/. Radiology requres medical school.
Yes but you would have to go through med school and specialize in radiology like everyone else, which will take a lot of time. If you wanted to know whether a Rad Tech can just step in and become a radiologist by experience....then no.
I think that it is never to late to start something new. Look at the link "time it will take" to get an idea of how long you will need to study until you can enter the workforce.
A radiologist is a physician who makes use of cutting-edge image technology. Math classes such as algebra, geometry, and trigonometry are required to accomplish the bachelor's degree and become a radiologist.
It takes skills and great handels with knifes

who knows try answering this question
First, if trained in the United States, you have to earn a medical degree such as the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) or Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), obtain a medical license, and then you have to train as a radiologist which is a five year residency.
There are training and certificate programs for radiology techs that take around a year, as well as associate's and bachelor's degrees that take anywhere from two to four years. The best credentials are a combination of formal training, a professional license, and work experience. Essentially - an Associates degree
