1 H. Councill Trenholm State Technical College 151 Location: Trenholm Campus Program Information Sonography, or ultrasonography, is the use of sound waves to generate an image for the assessment and diagnosis of various medical conditions. Sonography is usually associated with obstetrics and the use of ultrasound imaging during pregnancy, but this technology has many other applications in the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. Diagnostic medical sonographers use special equipment to direct non-ionizing, high frequency sound waves into areas of the patient s body. Sonographers operate the equipment, which reflects echoes and forms an image that may be videotaped, transmitted, or photographed for interpretation and diagnosis by a physician. To perform the exam, sonographers use a transducer, which transmits sound waves in a cone- or rectangle-shaped beam. Although techniques vary with the area being examined, sonographers usually spread a special gel on the skin to aid the transmission of the sound waves. Viewing the screen during the scan, sonographers look for subtle visual cues that contrast healthy areas with unhealthy ones. They decide whether the images are satisfactory for diagnostic purposes and select which ones to show to the physician. Sonographers take measurements, calculate values, and analyze the results in preliminary reports for the physicians. Occupational Choices Employment is projected to grow faster than average and job opportunities are expected to be favorable as sonography becomes an increasingly attractive alternative to radiologic procedures. More than half of all sonographers are employed by hospitals; the remaining are employed by offices of physicians, medical and diagnostic laboratories, and mobile imaging services. Diagnostic medical sonographers may specialize in obstetric and gynecologic sonography (the female reproductive system), abdominal sonography (the liver, kidneys, gallbladder, spleen, and pancreas), neurosonography (the brain), or breast sonography. In addition, sonographers may specialize in vascular technology or echocardiography. Average Full-Time Wage The average national full-time annual wage of a diagnostic medical sonographer is between $48,890 and $67,670. * Admission Criteria Applicants should complete and submit a Application and copies of college and high school transcripts directly to the Program Coordinator in addition to those submitted to the College s Admission Office.
