If the X-ray tech is an employee, then it's certainly not > the X-ray tech. But the copyright of a work for hire goes to the employer. The X-ray tech would get the copyright, but they're employed by the hospital. The hospital, in turn, is employed by the patient. As such, I would think the patient does own the copyright. Is a similar logic not applied to, say, wedding photos, in which an photographer is employed by a company which is in turn employed by the couple?
