Diagnostic medical Sonography

Sonographers are diagnostic medical professionals who operate ultrasonic imaging devices to produce diagnostic images, scans, videos, or 3D volumes of anatomy and diagnostic data.

Sonography requires specialized education and skills to view, analyze and modify the scan to optimize the information in the image. Because of the high levels of decisional latitude and diagnostic input, sonographers have a high degree of responsibility in the diagnostic process.

The employment outlook is great as technology advances reduce the need for more invasive procedures.

Upon successful completion of the AAS program, students are eligible to take specialized certification exams, which are required by some employers and may make you more marketable in a job search. Go to the Applications page to see the Diagnostic Medical Sonography application package.
