X-Ray Tech FAQs

What are the best agencies for X-Ray Tech jobs?

The agencies on Vivian that currently have the most X-Ray Tech jobs are OneStaff Medical (71), Marvel Medical Staffing Radiology (23), and Titan Medical Group (13).

What does an X-ray tech do?

X-ray techs use cutting-edge imaging methods to provide images of the inside of the human body in a non-invasive manner. The diagnostic images produced can help detect broken bones and other injuries, foreign objects, certain types of tumors, and other abnormalities. Common duties of an X-ray tech include:

  • Taking a brief patient medical history

  • Explaining procedures and answering questions

  • Positioning patients on the equipment and shielding them against radiation exposure

  • Operating X-ray equipment to get images of different areas of the body

  • Adjusting equipment to ensure clear images

  • Adhering closely to physicians’ orders to acquire required images

  • Analyzing images to determine whether more images are required

  • Evaluating and interpreting X-ray images

  • Reporting critical X-ray results to physicians

  • Recording X-ray procedure details in patient medical records

  • Cleaning and maintaining X-ray equipment

Where do X-ray techs work?

More than half of all radiologic techs work in hospitals (BLS), but they’re needed in many types of medical facilities. X-ray techs may be employed by outpatient clinics, medical and diagnostics laboratories, urgent care centers, private physicians’ offices, and any facility where X-rays are administered.

What skills make a good X-ray tech?

Good X-ray techs are technologically savvy with superb mechanical and technical skills that allow them to operate specialized X-ray equipment and troubleshoot equipment problems. They also have the knowledge and skills to shield patients and staff from small amounts of ionizing radiation emitted from imaging machines using protective equipment and closely adhering to safety procedures. Their precise attention to detail gives them the skill to obtain high-quality images. Successful X-ray techs also have an array of soft skills, including the ability to work well and communicate with other members of the healthcare team and patients. Strongly developed written communication, critical thinking, organizational, and time management skills are also a must.

How to become a Travel X-ray Tech

Education is the first step on the path to becoming a travel X-ray tech. Technicians are required to earn an associate degree or higher in radiology from a program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technologists (JRCERT) to be eligible for certification. They can complete a certificate program in radiologic technology to use for X-ray tech certification, but they must already have an associate degree in another scientific field to qualify.

Graduates earn national certification in radiology through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) after completing an ARRT-approved educational program in radiology and passing an ethics review and knowledge exam. Most states require licensure for X-ray techs, which may require passing a test and/or ARRT Registered Technology in Radiology credentials. Travel X-ray tech positions may require Basic Life Support certification, ARRT certification, and one to two years of X-ray tech experience.
