I want to pose a question.

What do you wish you knew before you became a Sonographer?

Here's to you who have taken the journey

I think about this because I get so many people asking me what it’s like to do my job, or how long does it take to become a Sonographer. I always have a few things in my mind that I wish I could share but don’t.


For example… the many times that I have found something on an exam that I wish I hadn’t. Whether that is a suspicious mass on a patient that I care for or more common than I care for a fetal demise. Other things are how much we are required to know. It seems like daily I am learning something new. It seems like there is always more body parts to learn from vessels to muscles to ducts to variants. I am always trying to remember what are normal lab values or organ sizes in children. There just seems to be so much more to learn. Though as I have said before this is why I absolutely love Ultrasound.

What are some things that you wish you knew before you started this journey?

Leave a comment and let’s see if maybe we can’t just help others that may be taking the first steps towards a career in Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound.
