The career outlook for sonography is looking great, but why?
The main reason is that sonography is a much safer and cost-effective route compared to radiological procedures. Between the years of 2012 to 2022, there should be a 46% job growth for this field.
A large percent of sonographers were placed in general medical and surgical hospitals in 2013, but a significant amount were also placed in physician offices, diagnostic laboratories or outpatient care centers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics diagnostic medical sonographers earned a median salary of $66,410 in 2013. California is one of the states that pays well.
