Sonography Schools, colleges, and universities
teach the use of high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce
active visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body.
Sonography, or Ultrasonography, techniques allow for dynamic ultrasound
images to be recorded on videotape, photographed, or electronically
transmitted to physicians for immediate diagnosis.
Sonography universities and colleges award associate and bachelor
degrees. Associate and bachelor degree programs in sonography provide
students with skills for entry-level positions as diagnostic medical
sonographers. Courses of study will include biology, anatomy,
physiology, chemistry, and physics. Four-year bachelor degree programs
will round out the educational experience with the required liberal
arts courses. Additional courses in sonography curriculums will include
studies of sonographic physics and instrumentations, gray scale, and
color-flow Doppler sonography.
Advanced studies for certificates and diplomas are often choices made
by practicing medical personnel, who wish to specialize in areas of
sonography to change or advance their careers, or increase their
earning potential. Sonography specialties include obstetric and
gynecologic, abdominal, ophthalmologic, cardiovascular sonography, as
well as neurosonography.
Courses designed for entry-level positions will involve patient
interaction, preparing patient histories, using ultrasound equipment,
assisting physicians in diagnoses, and working as a professional team
member in sonography, diagnosis, and healthcare.
A sonographer's responsibilities may be broad and varied. Not only must
a sonographer master techniques of sonography, X- ray, mammography, and
magnetic resonance images, they may also be responsible for evaluating
equipment purchases, adjustments to and maintenance of equipment,
keeping patient records, preparing work schedules, and managing
diagnostic imaging departments.
Sonography is used as an alternative to radiology, and, as it is a
safer method of imaging, its use is increasing dramatically. The need
for ultrasonographers is growing more rapidly than most occupations.
