Jonah’s Answer

Radiologist is an MD degree. That takes 4 years of college, 4 years medical school then a residence. Rad tech is a 1-2 year degree.


Radiologist read X-rays and other scans while Rad techs perform the actual test.

s’s Answer

I would concur with Jonah's answer.
Radiologists are MDs.
Their residency programs are usually 4 years (that's after a bachelor's degree from college).

Radiology is a profession, not a trade, I believe.

Richard’s Answer

Radiology is a good field with great job market.

A radiologist is an MD who went to 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, 1 year of internship, 4 years of radiology residency and an optional 1 year of fellowship.

Radiology technologists have either a 2 year associate's degree or 4 year bachelor's degree
