Medical Sonography Career Insights

What can I do with a degree in Medical Sonography?

The DMS program prepares you for a career in medical sonography (ultrasound). As a graduate of the program, you will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification examination in sonography or the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) national certification examination in sonography. You will specialize in ultrasound procedures that demonstrate anatomy and pathologies on computer screens and other electronic imaging devices. These images and your preliminary report will, in turn, be interpreted by radiologists and other physicians for the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury.

The average salary for diagnostic medical sonographers is $69,650 per year, according to U.S. Department of Labor statistics.
