Sonography Careers

Accredited sonography programs prepare students to work as diagnostic medical sonographers. Diagnostic medical sonographers use imaging equipment to perform ultrasounds, sonograms and echocardiograms on patients using imagining equipment that directs high-frequency sound waves into a patient’s body. Sonographers analyze these images and assist physicians by providing preliminary findings.

Most diagnostic medical sonographers work full-time jobs, and many work evenings and weekends. Sonographers must be able to work on their feet for long hours, assist patients and move heavy equipment.
