Sonography
Welcome to the Sonography Department

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.
