Ultrasound Sonography is a technique which uses medical technology along with computer driven imaging devices to produce multi-dimensional visual images of human organs, tissue and blood flow. Sonography technicians are an important part of any medical team. They typically work in a hospital environment as well as within private practices.
The diagnostic ultrasonography training course at E.D.P. School focuses primarily on Abdominal Sonography. The curriculum at our Brooklyn, New York campus focuses on and provides practical and theoretical knowledge in ultrasound sonography and teaches students how to perform ultrasound procedures. Upon graduation, students are expected to be both technically competent and considerate to patients as well as be able to effectively deal with a range of patients from very healthy to critically ill.
The program was designed to provide students with practical and theoretical knowledge in ultrasound sonography, and also teach students how to perform abdominal ultrasound procedures. Upon graduation, students should be able to be both technically competent and trained to effectively deal with a wide range of patients.
The training regimen includes a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on lab practice. Future diagnosticians will learn the proper terminology, techniques, and protocols employed by diagnostic sonographers and will be able to utilize their skills they learn in a career environment. The structure of the program includes didactic and classroom theory with laboratory experiences and clinical externship to provide a balance of interesting and informative experiences to mold a well-prepared Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.
This course is approved by the New York State Education Department and accredited by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools.

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.
