The Sonographer is responsible for monitoring a typical medical sonogram machine. Sonographers use these images to help doctors in learning more about the inside of the patientâ€™s body (i.e. organs, tissues, blood flow) that they wouldn’t typically be able to see. A Sonographer can also perform a sonogram on patients instead of exploratory surgery and various types of radiation.
As a Sonographer your duties include:
- Preparing the patient for their imaging procedure while teaching the patient about the procedure.
- Adminstering sonograms on the patients and logging all results that need to be reported to the doctor, the patient and their family members.
- Assisting the healthcare team before the sonogram and afterwards, to diagnose and treat the patient based on the findings from the sonogram.
One year of experience as a Sonographer within the past two years.
- Active Nursing License in good standing.
- Current Basic Life Support through American Heart Association.
