Travel Ultrasound Tech Jobs

Ultrasound technicians, also called diagnostic medical sonographers or sonographers, are highly trained allied health professionals who specialize in operating equipment that creates digital images of the body’s organs and tissues. These images help ultrasound techs track a fetus’ development, find tumors or other problems within the body, and inspect internal structures and functions, so doctors can make diagnoses. Sonographers are in high demand with an expected job growth of 17% between 2019 and 2029.

How to become a Travel Ultrasound Tech

An associate degree in diagnostic medical sonography is the minimum educational requirement to become an ultrasound tech, however a bachelor’s degree is often preferred. Degrees must be earned through a sonography program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. Certification isn’t mandatory, but most employers require applicants to be a certified diagnostic medical sonographer. Graduates can obtain this certification from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography or the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Some states have mandatory licensing laws, so check local requirements.

What skills make a good Ultrasound Tech?

Ultrasound techs are highly skilled at capturing the best possible ultrasound images and have advanced knowledge of how to operate high-tech machinery. They also have in-depth knowledge of human anatomy and physiology and have a deep understanding of pathophysiology. Besides these hard skills, several soft skills make an ultrasound tech more effective in their field. Active listening and verbal communication skills ensure ultrasound techs can effectively communicate with patients and other healthcare professionals. Good interpersonal skills are also essential to enhance the ability to empathize with patients. Reading comprehension ensures the ultrasound tech can follow written instructions supplied by doctors.

What does an Ultrasound Tech do?

Ultrasound techs operate specialized equipment that emits high frequency sound waves to create images of a patient’s internal organs, blood vessels and/or tissues. They work one-on-one with patients and play a critical role in detecting and monitoring various medical conditions, including high-risk pregnancies, heart defects, and cancer. Common tasks of an ultrasound tech include:

  • Preparing ultrasound equipment to conduct examinations

  • Preparing patients by answering questions about the procedure and putting them at ease

  • Recording the appropriate anatomy using the sonographic equipment

  • Reviewing images to check for quality and adequate coverage for diagnoses

  • Analyzing diagnostic images and presenting findings to doctors

  • Assisting radiologists with ultrasound-guided biopsies and other procedures

  • Maintaining diagnostic imaging equipment

Where do Ultrasound Techs work?

Sonographers may work in various locations, but most work in hospitals and diagnostic imaging centers. They may also work in outpatient clinics, medical and/or diagnostic labs, private doctors’ offices, and other healthcare facilities.
