Ultrasound technicians, also referred to as sonographers or diagnostic medical sonographers, use sound wave imaging technologies to capture images of patients' bodies for the assessment and diagnosis of medical conditions or illnesses. Ultrasound technicians can specialize in obstetric and gynecologic sonography (images of the female reproductive system), neurosonography (images of the brain and nervous system), abdominal sonography (images of the liver, kidneys, gallbladder, spleen and pancreas) or breast sonography. While most ultrasound technicians work in hospitals, they can also be found in physicians' offices, outpatient care centers and in medical and diagnostic laboratories.
