Radiologic technologists and technicians
Description: Radiologic technologists and technicians work in hospitals and clinics. They operate the machines that take X-ray pictures or magnetic resolution pictures of people's bones and internal organs. They must wear badges that measure the amount of radiation they are exposed to on the job. These workers might work nights or weekends and might be on call during odd hours. They are on their feet most of the day and must be strong enough to lift patients.
