In the state of Idaho, the average pay for a nuclear medicine technologist is about $56,000. Although this is a little lower than the national average in the field, the demand for healthcare workers and a technologist’s services is always rising. Especially now, as Baby Boomers in Idaho and throughout the nation begin to retire, the aging population has begun to expand substantially and is projected to continue to do so over the next ten years. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Idaho radiology jobs – including nuclear medicine – are expected to grow 30% between now and 2016.


Anyone who wants a job in the field of nuclear medicine must begin as a nuclear medicine technologist, because it tends to be this entry-level position (combined with education) that opens up opportunities for advancement to other levels and higher salaries within the field. For instance, a nuclear medicine tech might decide to pursue laboratory work, where the samples taken during scans are sent for study and analysis. Or another route might be research and development.
