Work Environment

Radiologists generally work during business hours, usually 40 hours per week. Those that work for hospitals and clinics that are open around the clock may work additional hours and be on call for emergency situations. They work in clean, well lit, organized environments, spending much of the workday on computers, examining images, conducting research, and reading and writing reports. They wear protective clothing and follow safety measures when conducting X-ray examinations and using radiation materials. This includes wearing lead aprons, lead gloves, and using disposable gowns, gloves, and masks.
