As my years in high school are coming to an end for me i am starting looking at what i want my future to look like. Ever since I was in middle school I have fell in love with the career of being an Ultrasound Technician, but as my years have gone on I found the interest of being a Radiologist. The role of an Ultrasound Technician is to use specialized medical equipment to direct sound waves through a patient’s body to diagnose specific various medical issues. These procedures are referred to as ultrasounds, sonograms, or echocardiograms. The employment outlook is excellent for sonographers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates that the number of jobs for sonographers will increase by 44% in between 2010 and 2020, adding over 23,400 jobs to the field of sonographers. My other choice for me to do for my career is to be a Radiologist technician. Radiology technicians produce clear and accurate images of the body that enable physicians to diagnose and treat medical conditions that would otherwise be difficult to document. Technicians operate sophisticated equipment that includes X-ray, mammography, computerized axial tomography (CAT) and positron emission tomography (PET) scan devices. The salary outlook for radiography professionals is quite positive. In 2008, the national average for salary in the radiology field was between $16.87 and $36.04 per hour, or $35,100 to $74,970 per year. For a profession that is expecting such a strong growth, these are compelling statistics to keep in mind when deciding your career path.
