Abstract

This study investigated radiologic technologists' (RTs) prestige ratings of 13 allied health professions and 13 general occupations selected from the original National Opinion Research Center (NORC) list. RTs ranked themselves fifth and on the whole tended to elevate the ratings of the allied health professions. There was a high degree of agreement between RTs' ratings and the NORC occupations data. Implications for the RT profession and for future research are noted.
