This degree plan is designed to prepare individuals for a career as a Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer (Echocardiographer) through classroom study and a supervised clinical experience. The Echocardiology technologist performs cardiovascular examinations to produce a picture of a heart and great vessels using high-frequency sound waves. These examinations are used to diagnose congenital heart disease, valvular disease, pericardial disease, cardiomyopathy, and other cardiovascular disorders. Types of examinations include 2D and 3D Echo, M-mode and color flow Doppler, as well as Transesophageal and Stress Studies. The Echocardiographer may work in hospitals, clinics and physicians’ offices.
