Job Overview

SUMMARY:

Sonographers can earn up to $99,000 or more. Learn more and see if this is the right career path for you.

JOB OVERVIEW:

Sonographers are diagnostic imaging professionals who use special imaging equipment that directs high frequency sound waves into a patient’s body. Sonographers create images and conduct tests to help physicians assess and diagnose a number of medical conditions. If you’ve ever seen an ultrasound image of an unborn baby, you’ve seen the work of a sonographer.

Today, most sonographers work in hospitals. However, there are other employment options including physicians’ offices, medical clinics, OB/GYN clinics and diagnostic imaging centers. Employment is expected to grow by 28% through 2020, which means you can expect plenty of job opportunities.

Employers typically require an associate or bachelor’s degree, or a 1-year certificate program. Learn more about the Mississippi schools that offer training in sonography today.
