yes it is common for a radiologist tech to be certified in all other relevant fields, it is more recommended you have wider knowledge about handling all the other medical equipment's, if you are going to run a private medical center then you might have to be certified in all these. as you can offer to help wide range of patients.

Yes. Lot of overlap between xray and CT. Less so for xray and sono.

Once a technologist gets trained for MRI they rarely go back to less advanced imaging.
