Ultrasound > Technologists
Diagnostic medical sonographers, also known as ultrasound technologists, use special equipment to direct non-ionizing, high frequency sound waves into areas of the patient's body. Sonographers operate the equipment that collects reflected echoes and forms an image that may be videotaped or photographed for interpretation and diagnosis by a radiologist.
All of our sonographers are certified under the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). This means they:
- Are educated in ultrasound and patient skills, including both classroom teaching and clinical instruction.
- Have extensive experience in the hospital with patients.
- Have a passing grade on ARDMS rigorous examinations, which evaluate both knowledge and competency in sonography.
- Stay on the cutting edge of ultrasound technology and patient care skills through ARDMS' required Continuing Medical Education program.
