Radiology Education Options in Medical Imaging in Michigan

As our nation’s population is continues to age, the demand for medical professionals, including those in the field of radiology, grows. The national need for radiologic technologists is expected to increase by 11% in the next decade – twice as fast as average for other professions. For those considering a career in radiological technology, now is a better time than ever to start pursuing a degree.

In the state of Michigan, there are 6,390 working radiological technologists, and that number is expected to grow as healthcare centers seek out more of these professionals to meet our population’s needs.

Salaries for Radiologists

The average annual salary for a radiologic technologist in Michigan is $52,790, with an average hourly wage of $25.38. While this is below the national average annual salary of $58,520, many Michigan towns and cities enjoy relatively low costs of living.

Exact salaries of radiological technology professionals may vary widely, and are influenced by an employee’s education level, experience and responsibilities. More information on Rad Tech salaries in Michigan.

Radiology Requirements in Michigan

The state of Michigan does not currently have any license or registration requirements for workers in the radiology field, except for those working in mammography. Mammography radiologic technologists are required to pass the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification exam and meet the 15 hour minimum for continuing education every three years.

All other radiologic technology students, however, are likely to benefit from passing the AART exam, as it opens up more employment opportunities.
