This info isn't correct. A radiologist is a Doctor they do not perform CT exams, etc. They do perform some procedures under CT, Fluoroscopy or other imaging modalities but they do not really run the equipment, except for in the case of Fluoro where some radiologists to prefer to run the fluoro equipment. Also a Radiologic Technologist is different than a technician. A technologist is not just someone who manages technicians. Most people commonly referred to as x-Ray techs are technologists who have completed a 2-4 year ARRT recognized Diagnostic imaging program which includes a year of unpaid clinical externship. Technologists must take a board examination and be registered by the ARRT and by their state depending on the laws of the state. Technicians have not undergone a formal course of study and are limited in what x-rays they are allowed to do. Many have only received on the job training. Usually technologists work in hospitals and technicians work in clinics.

Just so everybody knows there is a difference between a radiologist (which is a doctor) and a radiology technician. A tech is the guy who actually takes the picture and positions you, the radiologist is the doctor who interprets the image. There is a radiology related forum at where many common questions about the industry can be answered.
