Sonographer jobs involve the use of specialized ultrasound equipment that utilizes sonic waves to capture images of internal organs and tissues for the diagnosis and treatment of various medical problems in patients of all ages. Also called ultrasound technicians, these clinicians perform work that differs from radiation-based diagnostic imaging systems in its safety for both the sonographer and the patient. Sonography jobs are most frequently based in hospitals or diagnostic imaging centers, and require applicants who are in sound physical condition for the maneuvering of patients before and during the imaging process.
Sonography job seekers must have completed an accredited education program; candidates registered with the ARDMS are often preferred. Clinicians possessing a general radiology or healthcare background often acquire additional education to qualify for sonographer jobs; furthermore, sonography jobs require that clinicians keep their skills updated to maintain certification.

Sonographer salary rates vary but average about $66,000 per year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics; those sonographers with high levels of experience may receive higher levels of compensation. Med Travelers staffs premium sonographer jobs in locations throughout the U.S., and is proud to offer highly competitive sonography salary rates.

In addition, Med Travelers also offers sonographers a robust suite of benefits that includes free housing, job-related travel reimbursements, bonus options, flexible schedules, free liability insurance, assistance with acquiring licensing (in any state), and comprehensive health / vision / dental coverage. Our allied health travelers also have the ability to keep their insurance coverage between travel assignments.
