What is a Nuclear Medicine Technologist?

A nuclear medicine technologist uses pharmaceuticals, radioactive molecules that bind to certain diseases, to produce better images such as x-rays, CT scans, MRI's and PET scans.

Nuclear Medicine Technologists can find work at most hospitals or research facilities, as long as you have the entry level education, an associate's degree in the field.

Nuclear Medicine Technologists should make around $70,000 anually as a new employee, but can expect a 20% salary growth for every 10 years worked.
