    National Radiologic Technology Week® is celebrated annually to recognize the vital work of R.T.s across the nation. The celebration takes place each November to commemorate the anniversary of the x-ray's discovery by Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen on Nov. 8, 1895.

    The week-long celebration calls attention to the important role medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals play in patient care and health care safety. This year's theme is "R.T.s: Positioning Ourselves for Excellence." 

    Show your pride with official National Radiologic Technology Week products.

    Eligibility requirements for ARRT certification in Radiography, Nuclear Medicine Technology, and Radiation Therapy and for the primary pathway to MRI and Sonography will undefined effective January 1, 2015 undefined call for candidates to have earned an associate (or more advanced) degree from an accrediting agency recognized by ARRT.

    ARRT believes that the general education courses required for an academic degree will provide a firm foundation to support the evolving role of the technologist and the lifelong learning necessitated by the increasing rate of technological change. Quantitative and communication skills and understanding of human behavior that are acquired through general education classes are believed by ARRT to have value in continuing to shape professionalism and advancement of a Registered Technologist’s role in healthcare.

    The degree will not need to be in radiologic sciences, and it can be earned before entering the educational program or after graduation from the program. The degree requirement will apply to graduates on or after January 1, 2015.

    Individuals who complete a recognized non-degree granting program prior to that date will not be subject to the degree requirement.

    During the period while the academic degree requirement was posted for public comment and approved by the Board of Trustees, many R.T.s voiced support as a “great advancement” for our profession.

    ARRT leadership fully expects non-degree granting programs to continue graduating well-qualified professionals who are eligible for ARRT certification undefined either through an articulation agreement with an ARRT-recognized degree-granting organization or by admitting only those who already have an academic degree.

    The following are recent changes in the ASRT Bylaws: Article V – House of Delegates

    • The due date for affiliate delegate information forms was changed. Article V now reads: “Affiliates shall submit completed delegate information forms to ASRT for the delegates and alternate delegates by the end of the last business day of January. Delegate and alternate delegate positions not filled with qualified members by the last business day of January shall remain open until after the annual meeting of the House of Delegates.”

    Due to this change, the MSRT must change their existing Bylaws as well.  The proposed Bylaws change is as follows:

    •  The MSRT shall submit to ASRT the names of the MSRT delegates and alternate delegate by the first last business day of April January or the MSRT delegate positions shall remain open until after the ASRT House of Delegates' meeting.

    Please come prepared to discuss and vote on this proposed change.

    The average salaries of radiologic technologists rose by 1.7 percent in the past three years and now average $62,763, considerably higher than the U.S. per capita income of $42,693, according to the 2013 ASRT Wage and Salary Survey.

    The ASRT conducts a wage and salary survey every three years. Longitudinal data shows that average salaries of radiologic technologists grew by 20.5 percent during the past nine years, or about 2.28 percent per year. The greatest growth occurred between 2004 and 2007, when R.T. salaries increased by an average 12.6 percent. Salaries rose, on average, another 5.2 percent between 2007 and 2010.

    “The slowing wage growth between 2010 and 2013 seems to be a reflection of the larger economy as the country continues to recover from the recession,” said ASRT Chief Academic Officer Myke Kudlas, M.Ed., R.T.(R)(QM), CIIP. “Economic data show that wages have been stagnant for many American workers during the past few years. R.T.s aren’t immune to that trend, even though we saw modest gains in several medical imaging practice areas.”

    Mammographers experienced the largest average gains at 8 percent, from a $60,263 average annual salary in 2010 to $65,101 in 2013. Magnetic resonance technologists followed with a 5 percent increase, with salaries moving from $65,098 to $68,384. Computed tomography technologists’ experienced a 4.9 percent increase from $60,586 to $63,454. Cardiovascular-interventional technologists received a 4.3 percent increase from $64,614 to $67,379.

    However, two of the profession’s main disciplines on average experienced slight wage decreases during the three-year span. Radiation therapists saw a .7 percent decrease, going from a $79,125 average annual salary in 2010 to $78,602 in 2013, while radiographers experienced an average .5 percent decrease, from $53,953 in 2010 to $53,680 in 2013.

    The remaining practice areas all experienced wage increases, albeit small: medical dosimetrists at 3.1 percent, sonographers at 2.7 percent and nuclear medicine technologists at 1.8 percent. Salaries of quality management professionals remained the same since 2010.

    In addition to wage variations for different practice areas, salaries also fluctuate from region to region, according to the survey. On average, California R.T.s have the highest annual compensation at $84,162, followed by technologists in Hawaii at $80,761. Technologists in West Virginia earned the lowest base annual compensation at $51,607, with technologists in Alabama close behind at $51,648.

    The survey also highlights R.T.s’ satisfaction with their compensation and measures whether they’re better off than they were three years ago. Salary satisfaction responses show that the majority of respondents, 52.7 percent, are either very satisfied or satisfied with their pay. However, 42 percent of respondents said they were in relatively the same position as they were in 2010.

    The ASRT sent questionnaires and invitations to participate in the survey in February 2013 to a random sampling of registered technologists in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. A total of 10,639 radiologic technologists returned completed questionnaires, resulting in a 16 percent return rate.

    There has been little change in the use of mammography for routine screening for women since the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force issued a recommendation about it, according to a study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.

    The USPSTF issued a recommendation in 2009 that women ages 50-74 years undergo biennial mammograms and women ages 40-49 make personal screening decisions.

    Using data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance Study, researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine analyzed mammography rates before and after the USPSTF recommendation in 2006, 2008 and 2010. The analysis looked at data from 484,296 women ages 40-74, including health status, education level, race and ethnicity. 

    Results showed that there was no reduction in mammography use in 2010 compared to previous years and no significant reduction among younger women compared to older women.

    The ASRT continues to support annual screening using mammography and clinical breast examination for all women beginning at age 40. The American Cancer Society and Mayo Clinic also back these guidelines.
