We know a sonographer in our local hospital, and she was able to put me in touch with the head radiographer, so I got to spend 2 days in a radiology department - 1 day in x-ray, then a 1/2 day each in CT & MRI. I can only speak to my experience of that particular department, but I found that x-ray was organised chaos - I still refer to it as being like healthcare McDonalds, every patient was 5 minutes in-and-out, everyone was running round doing their jobs as they should, but from the outside it looks like pandemonium 😀 You spend most of your time standing up, and by the end of the day my back was killing me which was a major mark against it for me.
If x-ray was organised chaos, CT was just chaos.
MRI - x-ray and CT staff warned me how boring it was in there and how they did nothing all day, but I enjoyed it the most. Patient appointment times are a lot longer (~30 mins) and I enjoyed the more thoughtful approach to the work in there compared to CT/x-ray.
In the end I ended up choosing radiotherapy rather than diagnostic radiography because I felt it was a more rewarding career where you get to spend more time with the patients, and I didn't enjoy the revolving door nature of working in x-ray.
