What is a Nuclear Medicine Tech?

Nuclear medicine technologists are highly specialized allied health professionals who work closely with nuclear medicine physicians helping to diagnose and evaluate serious conditions, including heart disease and cancer. NMTs specialize in preparing and administering small amounts of radioactive drugs to patients, which are traced through diagnostic scans for imaging or treatment purposes.

Nuclear medicine is a relatively new and potentially lucrative medical field and the employment of nuclear medicine technologists is predicted to grow 5% between 2019 to 2029. An average of 1,000 openings for NMTs are projected each year over this decade with job growth significantly prompted by an aging population, the development of new radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, and promising research/development of cancer-detecting and cancer-killing agents.

What does a nuclear medicine tech do?

Nuclear medicine techs support physicians and other healthcare professionals in diagnosing and treating patients using nuclear medicine to provide information about the function and structure of every major organ system within the human body. NMTs work with radioactive drugs, called radiopharmaceuticals. Their primary tasks include preparing and injecting radiopharmaceuticals into patients and using sophisticated radiation-detecting equipment and scanners to capture vital diagnostic images. NMTs may also internally deliver prescribed doses of radiopharmaceuticals to precise areas of a patient’s body to treat certain medical conditions, such as tumors. Specific duties may include:

  • Explaining nuclear medicine procedures to patients and answering questions

  • Preparing stock solutions of radioactive materials

  • Calculating correct doses to be administered

  • Monitoring patients’ conditions during procedures

  • Keeping detailed records of procedures performed

  • Analyzing biologic specimens in laboratories

  • Providing images and data analysis to physicians for diagnostic interpretations

  • Performing fat absorption, red cell survival, and blood volume studies

  • Examining medical equipment or instruments to ensure proper operation

  • Maintaining and operating diagnostic imaging equipment

  • Protecting themselves, patients, and staff from unnecessary radiation exposure

  • Handling and disposing of radiation, hazardous materials, and medical waste safely

  • Assisting researchers investigating the uses of radioactive drugs

Where do nuclear medicine techs work?

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, NMTs who work in outpatient care centers earned the largest salaries in May of 2020. However, nuclear medicine techs also find plentiful and lucrative employment in private, community, and state hospitals; medical and diagnostic laboratories; various types of imaging clinics; and the private offices of physicians. NMTs may work at private or government research centers, public health institutions, and colleges or universities.

What skills make a good nuclear medicine tech?

Good nuclear medicine techs are highly skilled at using technology and are extremely comfortable working with computers and operating large pieces of electronic equipment. They have superior analytical skills that help them understand anatomy and physiology to assess accurate dosages. Successful NMTs are detail-oriented with excellent critical thinking skills and precisely follow instructions to ensure patient safety and prevent radiation overexposure. They possess good interpersonal skills, including active listening and communication skills, which allow them to effectively interact with patients and work as part of a team. Good NMTs are also compassionate so they can reassure patients who are upset or stressed over upcoming procedures involving radiation.

How to become a Travel Nuclear Medicine Tech

Beginning a career as a travel nuclear medicine tech begins with education. NMTs typically need a two-year associate degree from an accredited nuclear medicine technology program. Many employers and an increasing number of states also require NMTs to be certified and/or licensed to practice. Currently, at least 30 states require NMT licensure. Most states accept Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) certification and/or American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification in place of a state examination. The Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) maintains a listing of states that require licensure.

Even if a license isn’t required, most employers prefer NMTs who have professional certification. NMTCB offers Certified Nuclear Medicine Technologist credentials after completing all didactic and clinical requirements for graduation from a nuclear medicine technology education program. ARRT provides registration and certification in Nuclear Medicine Technology after earning an associate degree or higher, completing an ARRT-approved educational program in nuclear medicine technology, and passing an ethics review and examination. NMTs typically also need Basic Life Support certification.
