Why Earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Medical Imaging?

While many radiographers and medical imaging specialists enter their career after completing a two-year associate’s degree, earning your bachelor’s degree in medical imaging can bring a number of benefits. 

One such benefit is higher pay: According to a recent survey conducted by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), technologists who have earned their bachelor’s degree earn an average of $5,591 more per year compared to those who have only earned their associate’s degree. Over the course of a 40-year career, that equates to nearly a quarter of a million extra dollars in salary and wages! 

The same survey shows that those who have earned a master’s degree earn an average of $17,393 more per year—nearly $700,000 more over the course of a 40-year career. If you plan to eventually earn your master’s degree, though, a bachelor’s degree is almost assuredly a requirement.

Earning your bachelor’s degree in medical imaging can also open the door to a number of potential career paths, including:

  • Radiologist Assistant
  • Supervisory/Management 
  • Administration roles
  • Educational roles
  • Clinical Instructor
