Echo Tech Job Responsibilities
Echo technicians are responsible for preparing patients and diagnostic equipment for imaging procedures. They also explain procedures to patients. After positioning the patient, an echo tech applies gel that aids in sound transmission to the patient's skin before using the diagnostic equipment to create images of the patient's heart.
Echo techs typically first complete a degree in medical sonography. They can later pursue further specialization or certification in echocardiography, and certain specialized fields of echocardiography. There is not a specific education program required to work as an echo technician, but employers may prefer to hire those who have a completed a 2-year degree in diagnostic medical sonography from a program accredited by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS).
