Job Outlook

Employment of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2019 to 2029,

Employment of diagnostic medical sonographers is projected to grow 17 percent from 2019 to 2029, much faster than the average for all occupations. Employment of cardiovascular technologists and technicians, including vascular technologists, is projected to grow 5 percent from 2019 to 2029, faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages, the need to diagnose medical conditions—such as blood clots and heart disease—will likely increase. Imaging technology is a tool used in making these diagnoses.

Moreover, diagnostic medical sonographers, cardiovascular technologists and technicians, and vascular technologists will continue to be needed in healthcare settings to provide an alternative to imaging techniques that involve radiation. Diagnostic imaging personnel who are certified are expected to have the best job opportunities. Those certified in more than one specialty are expected to find even greater job opportunities.

Upon completion of the program, graduates will be equipped to pursue employment in both general and specialized doctor's offices, as well as other healthcare facilities. They will possess the necessary skills to efficiently carry out assigned tasks, whether in front office responsibilities or back office procedures, under the supervision of a doctor.
