MRI Technologist Pay in the Southeastern U.S.

As of May 2021, more than 38,000 MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) technologists were working in the United States according to the latest occupational employment data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).  At that time, nearly 10,800 MRI technologists were employed in the twelve-state Southeastern region of the country.  BLS data revealed the Southeastern U.S. to be the worst region of the country for MRI technologist pay. Not only did every Southeastern state have an average annual mean wage level for MRI technologists that was below the national average for the profession, but eight states in the region ranked among the ten worst states in the nation for MRI technologist annual mean wages.  A closer study of May 2021 BLS data provides the following details about MRI technologist pay in the Southeastern U.S.:
