ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN DIAGNOSTIC MEDICAL SONOGRAPHY

Diagnostic Medical Sonography is medical imaging that uses non ionizing ultrasound to generate 2D and 3D images of the body. The career field is technically challenging as sonographers are patient focused and must posses critical thinking skills as well as demonstrate diagnostic responsibility and impeccable decision making skills within a medical team setting. 

The sonography career field is expected to grow by 14% through 2030, which is significantly higher than the average of other occupations.*

What do Diagnostic Medical Sonographers do?

  • A Diagnostic Medical Sonographer is a highly-skilled professional who uses specialized equipment to create images (sonograms) of the human body.

  •  The sonographer uses a transducer that emits high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound), across a specific part of the human body to produce images (sonogram).  Those images provide the physician specific information to help make a diagnosis.
