I can’t speak for other professions, but to include Diagnostic Medical Sonographer & Radiologic Technologists in your list of “least stressful” jobs is 100000% pure ignorant.

Whoever wrote this has never experienced doing a cardiac ultrasound on a trauma patient in the ED while trying to find any heart movement in between CPR compressions. Or found a tumbling clot in a patients right atrium just waiting to go to the lungs and kill them. Or had their pager go off at 3am because a covid pt is crashing. Or do a TEE and cardiovert a patient and have to code them after.
Not stressful at all.
