Top Paying States and Annual wages of MRI Technologists (US Bureau of Labor Statistics)

According to the US BLS (BLS.Gov) team who on a regular basis curate data on salaries and wages, these are the top states in which MRI techs get compensated: California, Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, and Oregon. Mean wages range from approximately $92K to $108K. When one however looks at the range of salaries, there is significant variance in compensation with the lowest salaries coming in at around $36.5K in some states on average (likely part-time roles included in this data). The last data refresh occurred in 2021 and wages since then have likely increased due to a significant labor shortage for MRI technologists. The future is bright for technologists looking for roles in MR and increasingly a challenge for employers given the lack of qualified technologists.
