Ultrasound Technician Training You Need For The Future You Want
Diagnostic Medical Sonographer:
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program at Career Colleges of America (CCA ) will enable students to perform duties before, during, and after ultrasound procedures, commonly called sonography, the diagnostic medical ultrasound procedure uses high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. This type of procedure is often referred to as a sonogram or ultrasound scan. Sonography can be used to examine many parts of the body, such as the abdomen, breasts, female reproductive system, prostate, heart, and blood vessels. Sonography is increasingly being used in the detection and treatment of heart disease, heart attack, and vascular disease that can lead to stroke. It is also used to guide fine needle, tissue biopsy to assist in taking a sample of cells from an organ for lab testing (for example, a test for cancer in breast tissue). Unlike X-rays, sonography is a radiation-free imaging modality.
What Does A Ultrasound Technician Do?
The ultrasound technician, also known as a sonographer, belongs to the field of diagnostic digital imaging. Using an instrument known as a transducer that transmits a high frequency sound waves into the patient’s body. The sound waves would bounce off the patients body part/organ, resulting in echoes that would be captured by the instrument and converted into visual images. Doctors rely on these generated images to assess and diagnose the medical conditions of their patients. One of the new developments in the sonography technology is the 3D sonography which would enable sonographers to produce more detailed images.
The technology utilized by an ultrasound technician was associated with the field of obstetrics and gynecology. But with the growing health concerns of patients and physicians over the effects of other diagnostic scanning techniques, like radiographic technology, having competent ultrasound technicians to perform the non-invasive ultrasonography is becoming a top priority among healthcare facilities. Aside from being knowledgeable with the equipment utilized, a competent sonographer must be able to put the patient at ease during the examination in order to obtain the best images needed and be able to explain the whole process to the patient.
Ultrasound technology is one of the fastest growing professions in the country. To view statistical information about the profession, including the average hourly pay rate of SDMS members.
