Dr. Rogers earned a Doctor of Medicine from Northwestern University Medical School in Chicago, Illinois, in 1959, following a Bachelor of Medical Arts from the same in 1956. After starting out as a rotating intern at Walter Reed General Hospital in Washington, DC, now the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, in Bethesda, Maryland, he became a radiology resident at Fitzsimons General Hospital Army Medical Center, in Aurora, Colorado, from 1960 to 1963. Dr. Rogers was commissioned a second lieutenant in 1959 and advanced to major by 1967. He served as Chief of Radiology at the 2nd General Army Hospital in Landstuhl, Germany and subsequently as Vice Chief of Radiology at the US Army Brooke General Hospital, San Antonio, Texas. He left the U.S. Army Medical Service in 1967.

Dr. Rogers was a radiologist at Baptist Memorial Hospital in San Antonio, Texas, from 1967 to 1968. He then joined faculty at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio in 1968, working as a radiologist and, eventually, director of residency training. In 1972 he became an Associate Professor at the University of Texas Medical Center in Houston serving at both the Hermann and MD Anderson Hospitals.

In 1974 Dr. Rogers was recruited to serve as Professor and Chairman of the Department of Radiology at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University. He held this position for 21 years. In 1995 he accepted a position as the Isadore Meschan Distinguished Professor of Radiology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Roentgenology (AJR) from 1995 to 2003. He then was a Professor of Radiology at the University of Arizona Health Sciences from 2004 to 2014. Dr. Rogers served as a visiting professor on over 115 occasions.

Dr. Rogers has published 153 scientific articles, 122 editorials, and four books including The Radiology of Skeletal Trauma now in its 4th edition. Among the scientific articles are three which resulted in significant changes. The article "Beverage can pull tab; inadvertent ingestion or aspiration", JAMA 1975 initiated the conversion of pull tabs to stay tabs that remain attached to the can. Articles published in the American Journal of Radiology (AJR) February 2001 concerning the radiation dose of Computed Tomography (CT) in children led to the significant patient radiation dose reduction in CT. Articles published in the April and August 2010 AJR on the radiology of bisphosphonate fractures of the femur assisted in convincing the FDA that such fractures were a true complication of long term bisphosphonate therapy in the treatment of senile osteoporosis.

Hailing from a family of internal medicine physicians, Dr. Rogers' family influenced his decision to pursue medicine and to branch out and choose a career track in radiology instead of internal medicine. His career has been punctuated by achievements: He received Gold Medal Awards from the American College of Radiology, the Association of University Radiologists, the Chicago Radiology Society, the American Society of Emergency Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America.
