Abstract: The job satisfaction can be described as "the pleasurable emotional state resulting from the appraisal of one's job as achieving or facilitating the achievement of one's job values", being important to consider motivation and dissatisfaction factors (1) (2). It is known that the issues related to the profession have a general concern for all professionals, so there is a need to study the satisfaction of radiographers of our country and a foreign country, taking into account the professional conditions offered by the hospital and other job satisfaction factors in order to determine whether there are indeed the differences (3). The aim of this study was to evaluate the job satisfaction levels of radiographers from two different European countries (A and B). Professional satisfaction is a concept that has been defined in different ways over the years by several authors, in which the most frequent affirms that satisfaction is a synonym of motivation, attitude or positive emotional state, influencing the worker in his mental health, their behavior and presenting repercussions both at personal and organizational level. Despite the positive overall results concerning job satisfaction in both countries, strategies are suggested for enhancing radiographer job satisfaction levels for each significant dimension. Further research should be undertaken in this area, including a larger sample size with more radiographers, more countries and private imaging departments. Potentially this work could support the development of an european strategy to offer better support to radiographers and the wider radiography workforce.
