Diagnostic Medical Sonographers

Employment of diagnostic medical sonographers is projected to increase 26 percent from 2014 to 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, much faster than the average for all careers. One reason for this growth is that sonography is a safe, nonradioactive imaging process. In addition, sonography has proved successful in detecting life-threatening diseases and in analyzing previously nonimageable internal organs. Sonography will play an increasing role in the fields of obstetrics/gynecology and cardiology. Furthermore, the aging population will create high demand for qualified technologists to operate diagnostic machinery.
