Job Description:  A diagnostic medical sonographer, or ultrasound technician, is a person who uses ultrasound machines to view and interpret images with sound waves for the diagnosis and treatment of medical conditions. One of the most common uses for ultrasound testing is in the field of obstetrics to view the developing fetus for signs of any abnormal conditions and to determine a closer approximation of the age of the fetus. Diagnostic medical sonographer job duties are varied.

Responsibilities and Duties

Routine Daily Duties
In addition to the main job duty of testing, a diagnostic medical sonographer's routine job duties are to maintain daily logs of patients seen, take care of billing procedures, and perform routine maintenance of machines. Safety and sanitary procedures are performed after each test on the equipment, and maintaining adequate supplies are part of a routine day. Consultations with physicians and supervisors are done daily, as well.
Functional Area:  Healthcare/Medicine/Nursing
Functional Role:  Radiology Technologist
Candidate Requirement
Ultrasound Testing
The principal job duty of the diagnostic medical sonographer is to perform accurate ultrasound tests of a particular area of the body, based on a physician's order. The sonographer then directs high-frequency sound waves to the desired area of the patient's body via the ultrasound equipment to create a clear image of the area for analysis and diagnostic purposes. The diagnostic sonographer will perform ultrasound tests many times throughout a typical day.

Image Interpretation
The diagnostic medical sonographer then analyzes the test result from the ultrasound equipment. Calculations and measurements of the images are performed and presented to the physician for a diagnosis and treatment plan.

Obstetrics and gynecology use ultrasound testing to view the fetus in the womb to determine size, weight and/or gender, along with any potential problems with the fetus. The sonographer uses ultrasound to test for any problems within the uterus, cervix or vaginal canal. Images of small tumors, cysts or any other diseases can be determined at an earlier stage.

Diagnostic medical sonographers perform ultrasound tests of the heart and cardiovascular system to detect blockage of the arteries, veins or heart. By viewing the image, the diagnostic sonographer can aid the physician in discovering any damage from a previous heart attack, current problems--such as the heart pumping too weakly or pumping too hard--and to determine if surgery is needed.

During emergency situations, a diagnostic medical sonographer uses ultrasound to determine any injuries inside the body. Examples are appendicitis, ruptured spleen, collapsed lungs, lacerated liver, brain damage and shattered bones. Diagnostic medical sonographers who work in an emergency room are extremely busy some days and less busy on other days as opposed to steady testing in an office setting..
