Ultrasound Technician training in US Ultrasound Technician schools

Ultrasound technicians are trained to operate machines that use sound waves to internally view different areas of a patient's body. Ultrasound technicians may work in obstetrics, and use ultrasound machines to monitor the growth and development of the fetus in the womb; however, there are opportunities to work with other areas of the body, including abdominal, neurological, and other specialties. Ultrasound technicians may also have to record a patient's medical history prior to performing the ultrasound, direct the patient during the test if another position or viewing angle is needed, and select the best images to review with the physician.

How to Become an Ultrasound Technician

Ultrasound technologists use diagnostic imaging through sound waves to create an internal picture of a patient's body. Unlike most diagnostic testing, ultrasound is not computer operated, it is actually guided by the sonographer's ability to get clear, accurate pictures. In this field, it is required to work closely with a radiologist and communicate which images need to be studied further.
