want to become a radiology tech but i have a criminal background? career medical?

I want to become a radiology tech but i have a criminal background?
i got a class b misdemeanor in texas 5 years ago for a non violent crime, and no drugs were involved. it was not a sex crime.

i have heard that to be in the medical field, they do background checks before you can be certified. will i be able to get certified with this flaw in my background check? will i be wasting my time to go to school for this license?

    Contact the state licensing board in your state. I am also an RT and about 25 years ago I worked with a tech who did his training in prison while he was serving time for robbery. He was fully licensed and was able to “go straight” because of the training he received in prison.
