The U.S. Radiologic Technologists Study, which began in 1982, is a collaborative effort between the University of Minnesota, the National Cancer Institute, and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists to investigate potential radiation-related health effects from low-dose occupational radiation exposure.

More than 110,000 radiologic technologists — current and former — have participated in this study by completing one or more of the questionnaire surveys about their work history, health status, and other factors. Through their participation in the study, we are learning more each year about radiation and health.
