MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Almost seven-thousand people work in the medical imaging industry in Wisconsin.

That makes the Badger State one of the nation’s Top 5 employers in that field.

The Medical Imaging and Technology Alliance issued a new study Wednesday, showing the locations of the 7 largest medical imaging companies in the U.S.

The firms make such things as X-ray and MRI equipment.

The 7 companies in the survey account for three-fourths of the industry’s sales.

They include GE Healthcare, one of Wisconsin’s largest employers. It has imaging equipment facilities in Waukesha and Wauwatosa.
