  • The survey, which tallied responses from 10,639 radiologic technologists, also noted that average salaries have increased by 20.5% over the past nine years, or approximately 2.3% per year.

    ASRT attributed the most recent results to a slow economy, as the U.S. recovers from its recession.

    The survey also found the following:

    • Mammographers experienced the largest average salary gains at 8%, with the average annual salary advancing to $65,101 in 2013, compared with $60,263 in 2010.
    • MR technologists followed with a 5% gain, with salaries moving from $65,098 in 2010 to $68,384 this year.
    • CT technologists had a 4.9% increase, from $60,586 in 2010 to $63,454 in 2013.
    • Cardiovascular-interventional technologists received a 4.3% increase, from $64,614 in 2010 to $67,379 in 2013.

    Other wage increases include 3.1% for medical dosimetrists, 2.7% for sonographers, and 1.8% for nuclear medicine technologists. Salaries of quality management professionals have remained the same since 2010.

    Two occupations, however, saw their compensation decrease over the past three years. Radiation therapists saw a 0.7% drop, from a $79,125 average annual salary in 2010 to $78,602 in 2013. Radiographers' salary declined an average of 0.5%, from $53,953 in 2010 to $53,680 in 2013.

    On average, California RTs 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.
