About

Ultrasound imagingThis blog is dedicated to ultrasound imaging and all things related to sonography and the pursuit of the learning and educating others in ultrasound imaging. We are passionate about sonography and seek to bring as much information and news from the world of ultrasound. We’ll discuss everything from the latest techniques and methods to important bulletins about registry examinations and developing trends of ultrasound use in the hospital and private practice areas.

“The use of sonography will continue to increase as patients, when given the option, choose to avoid exposure to radiation or undergo invasive procedures. Although hospitals remain the main employer of diagnostic medical sonographers, employment is expected to grow more rapidly in physicians’ offices and in medical and diagnostic laboratories.”
