Ultrasound is commonly used to monitor fetal growth along with imaging the heart, the abdomen, gynecological, vascular and the musculoskeletal systems. Sonographers are highly skilled professionals who use imaging equipment that emits sound waves directed towards internal organs, blood vessels, tissues, and other structures. They can work in hospitals, clinics, or private practices to help physicians gather data needed to reach diagnostic decisions. Physicians heavily rely on sonographers to be the “eyes” inside the patient and aid in early diagnosis.

Program graduates will be prepared to do general sonography. With additional training, graduates can perform cardiac sonography, vascular technology, and other sub-specialties.
