Job Description for Echocardiograph Technician
An echocardiograph technician is a highly specialized professional who uses ultrasound technology to create detailed images of the heart and surrounding cardiovascular tissue. The echocardiograph is especially important in making precise diagnoses of certain heart conditions. Because of the sound waves used in the imaging process, this system can provide detailed images of areas in and around the heart that may not be detected by other imaging techniques.Read More...
An echocardiograph technician will help to make the patient comfortable, will typically talk to him or her through the entire procedure, and will explain how the equipment will be used. The technician then carefully places the patient and creates all necessary imaging. He or she often has to capture imaging of the front and back of the patient in question.
The requirements to work as an echocardiograph have become more stringent through the years, as ultrasound technology and the scientific understanding of cardiovascular functions have evolved. Most hospitals or dedicated ultrasound clinics require a technician to possess an associate's or bachelor's degree in a field related to medical sonography, as well as additional training of a year or more in specific echocardiograph technology. Technicians in this field typically work regular business hours of the week in a clinical environment.
