Computed Tomography Certificate
According to the Department of Labor, Computed Tomography Technologists are listed under Radiologic Technologists and Technicians. It shows the employment of technologists is expected to grow around 17% over the next 8 years (which is faster than the average for all occupations) because of a couple of reasons. The country’s population is growing and aging rather quickly, and that CT is continuing to become a frontline diagnostic tool, often the first choice of imaging because of its accuracy. Technologists with credentialing in CT will be very marketable to employers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows the 2009 national median wages $53,240 annual and the Georgia median wages of $50,300 for radiologic technologists.
