Re: Too Old to be X-Ray Tech?
Go for it Singsong!!! I've been in the imaging field since 1982.I did x-rays,
Nuclear Medicine(on the job training,I kind of got thrown in there when the
registered tech became pregnant...I didn't like Nuc Med...just my personal
opinion) Interventional(arteriograms)and finally
settled on Ultrasound(which only took another year to become registered)
I LOVE my job and find it very rewarding....but like Xrayman said...it may
sometimes be strenuous..if you work in a hospital setting day shift...you can
always get help lifting...it's when you work evenings and nights that you run
into struggles with lifting and as MRIrene said there's the barium enemas ,
air contrast enemas and VCUs ugghhh!But hey some folks don't mind them.
I've been in an outpatient setting for 4 years now
and I love it...no call..no weekends and no holidays!
