Diagnostic Medical Sonography, also called ultrasound technology is one of the fastest growing imaging modalities in the allied health field. Sonographic examinations are normally performed within radiology departments in both hospitals and imaging clinics. Diagnostic imaging is one many modalities similar to radiology, CT scans, MRI, and nuclear medicine yet sonography uses sound waves to create the images.  Professionals who perform sonographic examinations are called Sonographers, credentialed by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS).
