Ultrasound Technician Schools and Training Programs

An ultrasound technician operates special equipment to direct high-frequency sound waves into areas of a patient’s body to create images that can be used by a physician to make a diagnosis.

Ultrasounds are used most commonly on pregnant women to check on the health of an unborn child, but they can also be used to diagnose a number of health problems.

Ultrasound technicians may specialize in creating and analyzing images of particular areas, such as the female reproductive system, the abdominal cavity, or brain and nervous system.

Educational and Training Requirements for Ultrasound Technicians and Diagnostic Medical Sonographers

There are a variety of ways to become an ultrasound technician or diagnostic medical sonographer. Employers may accept formal education in sonography, training in the workplace, or a combination of both. However, employers typically prefer applicants who graduated from an accredited program or completed training in an accredited practice, and who are registered. Accredited programs are offered by colleges and universities. Some hospital programs are accredited as well. In 2008, the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) accredited over 150 training programs.
