limited techs are just that, they're limited to the type of exams they can perform(extremities) and how much they can make. Salaries are generally much less than a unlimited tech and the education requirement is a few months as opposed to the normal associates degree required to be a Registered Technologist. As far as employment goes hospitals would be out of the question with a limited tech license, and most work would be working for orthopedist.

Im a limited scope tech....Basically I cant perform xrays of the pelvis and abdomen. thats it. And as far as that hospital statement...thats not true....certain states wont allow you to work in a hospital with more than 150 beds but there are plenty of other states that dont have a restriction on hospitals. And working for Orthopedists is not the only job u can find. Im working in a Family clinic now making 17 an hour.
