Mri Tech Or Sonographer?

I need advice! For the ones who are working as a radiologic Technicians, MRI Technicians or Sonograper, please tell me which job you think is the best. I am really interested in those career fields. In the states I live in, you can go straight to the sonographer program but you have to go to Radiologic Technician program first to become a MRI Technician. I think to go to Radiologic Technician program gives you more opportunies in the future. Is money better than how much Sonographers make? Is it hard on your body to do the MRI technician job? How hard is the program? Please help me. Thanks!

    I think MRI is the least hard on the body. X-ray is the hardest, with ultrasound in between. As for pay, generally x-ray makes the least, and MRI and US are close to each other in pay according to ASRT’s last salary survey. I can’t say which is the best career – that’s such an individual thing.
