Abstract Researchers surveyed state professional radiography organization members to document incidence of back pain, demographic data and preferences for performing radiography tasks. Six of the routine radiography tasks included in the survey were performed the same way by radiographers with back pain and those without back pain. Four of the tasks were performed differently by the two groups of radiographers. Applying biomechanical principles to radiography clinical situations may increase radiographers' awareness of, and decrease the incidence of, occupational back injury.
