What's the difference between all radiation/ health services fields?
What's the difference between diagnostic sonographer, radiology tech, nuclear medicine, and radiation therapist?
I tried to get more information, but didn't find anything useful.
Which one has short schooling and pays more?

Rad Therapy: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos299.htm
The most common degree for all of these is an Associate's (2 years). For Nuc Med you have to complete a Radiologic Technology program first, and I believe the same applies to Radiation Therapy. Some Sono. programs also require a prior degree first. Of all these listed, Radiation Therapist pays most ($73k/yr).Source(s): Sono. student
