Sonography Schools: What to Look for When Choosing

Sonography or ultrasonography is a diagnostic procedure, which uses ultrasound to create visual images of the inside of the human body. Ultrasound scan and sonogram are other terms that describe this procedure. Since this procedure is effective on any part of the body, its popularity is increasing as a means to detect cardiovascular disease. Non-physician personnel also known as vascular technologists or sonographers may also perform the procedure. The field of sonography may involve numerous specialty areas. Because sonographers play an important role in a patient's treatment and diagnosis, it is important to choose a school carefully.
