Nuclear Medicine Technologists

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of nuclear medicine technologists should grow faster than the average through 2022. Advances in medical diagnostic procedures could lead to increased use of nuclear medicine technology in the diagnosis and treatment of more diseases, including cancer treatment and cardiology. In addition, as the country's population ages, there will be a growing number of middle-aged and older persons, who are the main users of diagnostic tests. A growing population using these tests will create a demand for more professionals to administer the procedures. Most new job opportunities are expected to be in areas with large hospitals.
