Travel Radiology FAQ

A radiologic technologist operates equipment and practices radiation protection techniques to minimize potential hazardous effects while using X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans, MRI scans, and other imaging technologies to create images of the body’s internal structures. They help capture interior images that are crucial to help diagnose various diseases and conditions and help physicians decide on the best course of treatment. Radiologic technologists also help maintain detailed records and participate in some aspects of patient care.

To become a travel rad tech, you must complete an education consisting of a two or four-year degree for Radiologic Technologist (RT) jobs and medical school for Radiologist or Radiation Oncologist positions.

Facilities all over the United States are in search of travel radiology techs in the areas of CT, MRI, Ultrasound, and Mammography. Creating a profile with Fusion Marketplace is one effortless way to store and share employment history, education & certification, licenses, references, and any other professional documents. Fusion Marketplace also offers multiple agencies specializing in radiologic technologist travel, and the recruiters are available to provide support at every stage of your travel journey.

Outpatient Imaging Centers

Radiologic technologist jobs are offered at outpatient imaging centers, which can be free-standing, within a hospital or large clinic, privately-owned, or part of a hospital health system. Free-standing outpatient imaging centers offer a more convenient way for patients to complete physician-ordered scans and radiologic procedures. They are usually located away from large hospital campuses, allowing the patient to save time and easily access the facility.

In addition, such locations can also offer lower-cost procedures because of lower overhead compared to imaging centers located in hospitals. Most free-standing imaging centers offer same-day and next-day appointments with extended evening and weekend hours.

Imaging centers within or attached to a hospital may do both inpatient and outpatient imaging. This allows both the inpatient and outpatient areas to share equipment, resources, and staff and perform progress studies. However, this can also cause delays for outpatients who must then sometimes wait behind the more urgent inpatient cases, such as traumas. For this reason, most facilities have separated their inpatient and outpatient services.

Women's Outpatient Imaging Centers

Many facilities now offer women-specific imaging centers. These are usually part of a hospital, but a few independent imaging centers do offer these services. The goal is to make women as comfortable as possible for routine screenings or specialties like mammography, and ultrasounds. Women's imaging centers offer extended hours for radiologic technologists as well.

Mobile Units

Hospitals choose mobile diagnostic imaging for a variety of reasons. Smaller hospitals may decide with either larger hospital systems' mobile units or independent mobile imaging companies to provide these services. This is ideal if the hospital does not offer a particular imaging modality or if volumes are especially low.

Low volumes in these smaller hospitals make owning the systems a financial challenge because of facility budgets, and mobile imaging is an ideal way to meet patients' needs without making a significant investment. With provisional mobile imaging, the radiology equipment is delivered to the hospital via trailer. The facility will often provide its own staff, but the mobile provider can often offer radiology tech staff as well.

Physician Clinics

Some physician offices/clinics offer imaging services, usually basic X-ray and ultrasound, and offer radiologic technologist jobs. Having these services on-site, assist the physician in diagnosing or monitoring disease. Ultrasound imaging scans are included in most offices offering women's health services.

Take Ownership of Your Career

You are not limited by only the opportunities in your current location. By looking at travel radiology technologist options in different parts of the world, you open yourself to better career growth. Additionally, you will work with a broader number and more diverse set of patients with potential issues that you can help resolve using your imaging expertise.

Earn a Higher Salary and Flexible Benefits

A travel rad tech receives comprehensive benefits and allowances like their local counterparts. The only difference is traveling radiologists can earn a higher salary.

Additionally, travel radiology technologist staff can work on a contract or assignment basis. They can get as many jobs as possible with this setup if they want to receive better pay. This gives them better control over which jobs they complete and how they want to carve out their career as a travel radiology technologist.

While average rates for compensation and salary can vary depending on the travel radiology technologist contract or agency offering, pay packages for travel radiology jobs typically have four major components: hourly taxable pay and wages, meals and incidentals, housing, and travel.

Hourly Pay

Full-time radiologists working at healthcare facilities receive a salary, but most travel allied health employers offer hourly wages. Every pay package must include a taxable hourly wage, and the amount can vary depending on the shift, location, and specialty required of the assignment.


Housing payments can be included in a payment from a staffing agency to the travel radiology technologist. This is typically offered in two ways. Either the company is providing housing, or travelers can take the housing stipend.

It is more beneficial for travelers to take the housing stipend for two primary reasons. First, they will have a choice of where they will stay. Everyone’s definitions of comfort and acceptable are different. The second reason the housing stipend is more beneficial for them is that it can be given as a non taxable earnings.

Meals and Incidentals

Also known as per diems, meal and incidental stipends provide a daily budget for daily living expenses. These standards vary depending on the cost of living in cities and states across the country.

Travel Expenses

Travel is the last portion of the pay package. Many recruiters may not even offer travel reimbursement and instead put that money into the per diems or housing for their traveler, so they are receiving the benefits over the entire contract, not just at the very beginning or end of the contract.

While a travel stipend can be used to cover the cost of a flight for radiology tech travelers, it is often used to subsidize the traveler’s expenses to and from jobs. Travel expenses can be offered as a reimbursement rate per mile, though many agencies will opt to offer a flat rate to and from an assignment.
