There’s a bright future ahead for ultrasound technicians


The ultrasound of a baby is one area of expertise. Ultrasounds are also used for checking thyroid, breast, testicular health as well as vascular (pertaining to blood vessels) checks.

Anyone looking for a career which is sure to be in demand for many years to come might want to consider becoming an ultrasound technician or, more specifically Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.

It’s not a program every college offers and they don’t take a lot of students at a time — fewer than 20 because there are a limited number of hospitals where students can do clinical work as they learn — but it’s a solid profession.

“Our graduates are all over Michigan and the U.S.A.,” said Caroline O’Neill-Nacy, Oakland Community College’s director of Diagnostic Medical Sonography. “At Johns Hopkins, at the Mayo Clinic — everywhere.”

OCC was the first college in Michigan to offer an ultrasound technician program, graduating its first class in 1981.

OCC works with several hospitals in the tri-county area, so once its DMS students finish enough coursework they’re able to move on to clinical practices.

(OCC isn’t the only college in the area to offer DMS studies; Baker College in Auburn Hills does, too, as do St. John Providence and Henry Ford Hospital’s main campus.)

Nuclear Medicine Technologist Job Description:

Nuclear medicine technologists prepare, administer and perform nuclear medicine procedures in either hospitals or privately run facilities. There are about 30 different nuclear medicine procedures that a technologist may be asked to carry out, some of which are quite common (bone scans, myocardial perfusion imaging, lung scans), and others that are rare and may be performed infrequently (salivary gland scans, esophageal transit studies). Because nuclear medicine has tests for almost every organ and (organ) system in the body, an advanced understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology is required. Nuclear medicine technologists must understand medical terminology and disease processes, and possess excellent communication and patient care skills.

These are tough times for doctors, hospitals, and medical facilities.  The economy has slowed dramatically over the last 5-7 years and the health care industry feels this as much as any other.  In addition, the new rules and regulations coming with the implementation of ObamaCare make the future landscape difficult to predict.  This means less hiring, lower salaries, and oftentimes the availability of only part-time positions.  So if you’re considering a career in radiological technology, or have already started your education, what can you do to improve your chances of finding a good job when you graduate?

A Difficult (at best) Job Market

For the last 5 years radiological technology schools have been churning out thousands of well qualified x ray technicians, CT technicians, MRI techs and the like.  Unfortunately, they’ve created a glut of talent on the market in a very difficult economic time.  The marketing materials for these schools highlight the rewarding careers, high salaries, and great benefits that go along with a career in medical technology.  Even worse, they advertise that there are high paying jobs just waiting for every graduate of their programs.  But most of their graduates are finding an entirely different landscape upon graduation.

Hospitals are looking to save money in any way that they can.  One of the main tenants of ObamaCare is that health care costs must be brought under control.  For better or for worse, the law leans heavily upon physicians, hospitals, and clinics to bring about these savings through whatever means necessary.  And one logical method for hospitals is to hire individuals with talents in multiple areas.  For radiographers this means acquiring expertise in more than one modality.

The days of taking a one year or 18 month x ray technician course and jumping straight into a high paying job are gone.  The competition is fierce, and the demand is low.  Look at the message boards online and you will find hundreds if not thousands of candidates in search of ANY job.  And many of these people have been looking for longer than a year.
