How much money does a limited scope x-ray technician make?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Depends on what type of setting you are in. I made $15.00/hour as a Limited Scope tech in a clinic. When I got my RT license, I went to work at a hospital, which has a starting pay as an RT of $19.00/hour. For Limited Scope at the hospital they only pay $13.75/hour.

You can obtain this information by going to www.collegeboard.com/splash/ and using the sites College MatchMaker search engine, or you can also click on the related links below which will take you directly to the site. You can research colleges and universities by name, or by programs of study, or by geographical location, size, or combinations of part or all of them etc. The site will provide you with a list of institutions based on your request. It will give you the schools background, accreditation, degree offerings, programs of study, entrance requirements, tuition and fees, room and board, athletic programs etc. and a link to each institutions official web page. Make sure the college or university has a regional accreditation (most important). Practice navigating this site. It will be well worth the time and effort.

How much school is required for x-ray tech?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

There are several courses that must be completed to become a certified xray technician. This will normally take abot 2 years to complete.

It generally takes 2-4 years depending on prerequisites to become an Xray technician. For a 4 year programs, it averages to about 120 credit hours of classes.

Where is an accredited xray tech program or a community college in or around Cincinnati OH that has an xray tech program?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

You can attend Raymond Walters for a two year degree in radiology. That is the best I can do for you. It is extremely hard to find that field of study in the city of Cincinnati. You may want to explore a larger city with more opportunites, like Houston Tx. They have an extremely large Medical Center Nieghborhood. Good Luck. By the way. RW costs about $5,000.00 per year. Pretty good. $10,000.00 for the Associates Degree.

About 40k.

Answer

Radiology Tech's make around 50k a year. Other Radiologists, particularly Diagnostic and Interventional Radiologists, make loads more (but that's off-topic now, isn't it?)

Alt Answer

___ technicians can expect minimum wage or slightly higher. More if actual skill- or knowledge use required.

Answer-

The average salary of radiologic technologists can be around $44,000 per annum. While a certified radilogist with bachelor's or master's degree can earn around $ 199,000 annually across the US.

Asked by Wiki User

I would wonder why you want a "cheap x ray for your dog" - radiographs (x-rays) are typically done to diagnose a structural problem such as a broken leg or an abdominal mass. "Cheap" is probably not the way you want to go with this - you need your dog to be properly positioned to get an image that worth more than the paper it's printed on, and you want a veterinarian who is skilled in reading and interpreting these images. If your dog could use a radiograph for diagnostic purposes but you have financial concerns, talk with your veterinarian about them BEFORE having the radiographs done - veterinarians are well aware of the financial realities for their owner/clients and most are happy to work with you to figure out how to provide the best care you can afford for your dog.

What are facts about X-ray fish?

Asked by Wiki User

X-Ray fish eat other fish and they are any fish smaller than them!!! Family: Characidae Species: Pristella maxillaris Offical Name: The X-Ray fish Size: 2.5cm (1 inch) Diet: Omnivorous Tank levels: All Habitat: Inland waters of Venezuela, Guyana, and Amazonian Brazil Remarks: This is a decorative, long standing aquarium favourite. Due to demand, most specimens are now commercially bred rather than wild caught. Comments: The body shape of the X-Ray Fish follows the traditional tetra pattern, with equal curvature on dorsal and ventral surfaces. The main distinguishing feature of this fish is the lack of colour and apparent translucence. The internal organs in their silver sac are visible. If ever there was a strange looking fish species this is one for sure. Still, a very good species of fish for a community setup. ---------------------------------------- This fish comes from the "Tropical Fish" family species of fish. I hope you enjoyed this fish profile that I put together to help people to choose the right fish for the right aquarium tank setup you may own, or be thinking of buying in the future. If you require more information about keeping fish in general and what are the right fish to choose for your tank setups, you can always visit my site called "GB Aquarium" and see what's posted new there and also join in the discussion taking place.

What is the principles of x ray diffraction?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

The idea is that, due to the small wavelength of X-rays, atoms can serve as a diffraction grid - causing diffraction patterns. (If you don't know about diffraction, I suggest you search in the questions for "diffraction", or ask a separate question for diffraction.) Crystals are good for this, because of their regular structure.

When did Marie curie invented x-rays?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Marie Curie did not invent the x-ray. Roengten did.

Roengten discovered X-ray on November 8, 1895. He took an X-ray of his wife's hand a week later.

Coolidge developed the x-ray tube.

Marie Curie improved the x-ray tube and developed an X-ray unit that was used in WWI, a mobile unit.

Why are all gamma rays shorter than x-rays?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Gamma rays are more energetic because they have a higher frequency. The operate on the order of 10^19 Hz, whereas X-ray frequencies are typically an order of magnitude or two smaller.

Energy is related to frequency by Max Planck's equation E=hf, where h is Planck's constant (6.626x10^-34 Js) - we see this product yields the unit Joules.

Frequency and wavelength are easily related knowing light travels at a finite speed of about 300,000,000 m/s-

300,000,000 m/s = wavelength (m) * frequency (1/s)

If a gamma ray has 10^19 Hz frequency,

( 300,000,000 m/s ) / ( 10^19 s^-1 ) = wavelength (m) =~ 3x10^-11 m = 0.03 nm

If an x-ray has 10^17 Hz frequency,

( 300,000,000 m/s ) / ( 10^17 s^-1 ) = wavelength (m) =~ 3x10^-9 m = 3 nm

The higher frequency photon can be thought of as more energetic since more successive wavelengths pass through a given point per second.

Why is it important for a patient to remain still during an X-ray exam?

User Avatar

Asked by BrendaMoralesgp3205

An X-ray is a machine that uses radiation to see "through" to your bones, but since it has to produce an HD picture of something INSIDE you, it's gonna take a while. If you stand still, it can produce the image easily. If you move, it will come out blurry. It's almost like taking a picture or painting someone, or maybe even sculpting someone.
