The median salary of entry-level Sonographers is $71,410/year on average and expected to increase annually according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Enjoy diagnostic ultrasound news from the Ultrasound Smart Brief provided by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography:
Explore diagnostic ultrasound information from the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers:
“They operate special imaging equipment to create images or conduct tests,” to “help physicians assess and diagnose medical conditions.”
The sonography equipment uses high-frequency sound waves or ultrasound to produce images of pregnancy, internal organs, blood flow, and other physiological health situations.
The BLS stated that in May of 2017 the median annual wage for diagnostic medical sonographers was $71,410. From 2016 to 2026 the employment of diagnostic medical sonographers and cardiovascular technologist and technicians is projected to grow 17 percent which is much faster than the average for all occupations. As the Baby-boom population ages, the need to diagnose medical conditions like blood clots or heart disease will increase and as such, so will the need for imaging technology to make the diagnoses.Learn more
Our ultrasound program allows you to work with your instructor on a schedule that works best for you. This takes the stress out of having to juggle work, home, and school.
Modules are only 7 weeks, and you manage your time on assignments, quizzes, and tests, uploaded to an easy to use learning management system.
Lectures are only 4 hours within a 7-day week. This is delivered in 2-hour lectures, 2-days per week.
Instructors are live in the classroom, and your personal lecture is archived for you to go back and review. No more missed portions of your vital course learning.
A sonographer instructor will travel to you to get you scanning complete examinations. Enter your clinical site helping your volunteer sonographers instead of hindering busy ultrasound departments.
Work closely with your sonographer instructors who offer guidance with ultrasound examination techniques that will help with difficult examinations.
Use a transducer at home to practice ultrasound examinations that connect to your phone or tablet.
Learn how to work closely with radiologists and physicians for the best care a patient can get.
Practice until you are ready. We offer an ultrasound program that allows you to complete at your pace.
An online training program in diagnostic medical sonography may be ideal for those who live in rural regions, have parenting responsibilities, need to keep their jobs while they study, or have other conditions that prevent them from conveniently attending a traditional, on-campus program.
It’s important to recognize that all future medical sonographers will have some in-person hands-on component to their training due to the nature of the course work. Our online medical sonography program offers approved courses and accommodates students’ unique geographic, professional, and familial considerations and includes a Mobile Ultrasound Scanning Studio.
Individual students get a custom education that works with busy schedules. A sonographer must be able to work independently using the technical scanning skills they build at their own pace. Appropriate muscle memory using the transducer is one of the essentials of performing diagnostic ultrasounds. This acquired muscle memory takes individuals a different amount of time. WRDLC accommodates this time. Sonographers take their ARDMS examinations to become certified sonographers. Our programs allow you to apply to take the ARDMS examinations upon graduation. For Sonographers to collaborate with radiologists and physicians about ultrasound findings, a solid knowledge of normal and abnormal ultrasound appearances, associated conditions, and related lab values are studied. WRDLC offers virtual online interactive classrooms that are guided by certified sonographers. These same instructors provide tutoring and mentorship to keep you on track.
