Approximately two and one half years is the least education a radiologist technician can expect to complete. Many hospitals, clinics, and states require a four year degree in radiological science because the demands for this position are so competitive. The extra half year in the minimum requirement of education applies to fields of specialization, for which the candidate may apply for more than one, but it increases the length of time required to complete each specialty. Radiologist techs work under the supervision of the radiological assistants and radiologist, but can do the requirements of their job and specializations independently of their supervisors. This career path essentially parallels the job duties of an LPN in nursing.
