Medical Imaging Technology Career
Medical imaging technologists are highly specialized professionals proficient in the principles and procedures necessary to provide diagnostic imaging and patient care for a variety of essential examinations.
These skilled imaging professionals provide exemplary patient service in adult or pediatric echocardiography (AE/PE), cardiac or vascular imaging (CI/VI), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), echocardiogram (ECHO), mammography and sonography.
What is diagnostic medical sonography?
Diagnostic medical sonography is a type of medical imaging that uses ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves. Ultrasound waves can be bounced off tissues by using special devices. The echoes are then converted into a picture called a sonogram. Ultrasound imaging allows an inside view of soft tissues and body without producing harm or bio-effects to patients. Sonographers exercise a high level of technical skills and judgment while producing ultrasound images.
