Sonography occupation description

Diagnostic Medical Sonography student

Diagnostic medical sonography is a type of medical imaging that uses high-frequency sound waves, also known as ultrasound, to produce images of organs, tissues and blood flow. Medical professionals use the images to evaluate organs and soft tissue structures of the body, including the brain, abdomen and peripheral blood vessels. A common example of sonography are the images that expectant parents view of their unborn child, which are made through ultrasound technology. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, demand for sonography technicians is expected to grow by 39 percent through 2022, which is a much higher rate than many other occupations.
