Prepare for your career in the field of ultrasound technology at the University of Kansas.
As a diagnostic ultrasonography tech, you'll use ultrasonic imaging devices to apply high-frequency sound waves (diagnostic ultrasound), color and spectral Doppler to assist in the diagnosis of conditions and diseases. Ultrasonography produces dynamic visual images of internal structures and organs to assist with the analysis of blood flow dynamics (hemodynamics) of blood vessels throughout the body.
In your practice of ultrasonic sonography, you are certified to scan different areas of the body using diagnostic ultrasound.
To become a registered diagnostic sonographer and vascular technologist, you must successfully pass the Sonography Principles & Instrumentation national board exam administered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS). Career projections in this field remain strong.
