Ultrasound Tech Job Responsibilities
Ultrasound technicians explain the procedure to the patient, along with programming and adjusting the scanner for the procedure. Provided that the sonographer is not making a video recording of the ultrasound images, he or she decides which still images, called sonograms, to capture and show to the physician for diagnostic purposes.
Medical sonographers must have formal training, typically an associate's or bachelor's degree in sonography, though some certificate programs are also available. Employers prefer to hire ultrasound technicians who have earned industry certification from an organization such as the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). ARDMS offers registration based on passing exams on physical principles and instrumentation. Ultrasound technicians who pass the ARDMS exam receive the title of Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer (RDMS).
