Diagnostic Medical Sonographers

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of diagnostic medical sonographers is projected to increase 39 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations through 2022. 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.
