Hi Aliyah! A radiology technologist is usually someone who has gone through a 2 or 4 year Radiologic Technology program. Lots of colleges offer these programs, I went to a city college in California. You would need to apply to these programs to be accepted. A radiologist, on the other hand, is a doctor of medicine who has been specially trained to read X-rays, MRI’s, ultrasounds, etc. They have gone through med school (4 yrs premed, 4 years med school, and 4 years of specialized training in Radiology. Hope this helps!

Kenneth’s Answer

The beginning of the road to become a radiologist starts with getting accepted to medical school. After you are in medical school then you can see if your interest is well founded by taking clinical rotations in the different aspects of radiology. Just as other specialties in medicine, radiology has diversified into diagnostic radiology and interventional radiology. As a 3rd or 4th year student you can do rotations in both to have a better understanding of the specialty.
