Welcome to the Sonography Department

Due to Legislative mandates, program changes have been made effective for Fall 2016. Please review each page carefully to the left. Contact Sonography at 512-223-5944 if you have any questions.


Sonographers use high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to create images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body for diagnostic purposes. Graduates find work in hospitals, physician offices, or outpatient clinics. Several areas of specialization, including Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Diagnostic Cardiac Sonography, and Vascular Technology, are all available at ACC.

The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography, the American Society of Echocardiography, and the Society for Vascular Ultrasound offer detailed career information on their websites.
