Diagnostic medical sonographers use sophisticated equipment to project sound waves into patients' bodies and create images of their tissues for medical diagnostic purposes. Sonographers can choose from several specialization options, including abdomen, breast, vascular, and cardiac sonography. Because of the many fields available in sonography, these professionals can work in a variety of settings, from doctors' offices to medical laboratories. Most workers are hired full time, and some diagnostic medical sonographers must work graveyard and weekend shifts (study.com)
Sonographers generally work in urban hospitals; in fact more than half are employed there. Other options include physicians' offices, clinics, and diagnostic imaging centers. While with patients, which usually makes up the majority of the day, sonographers are on their feet and may need to lift and turn their charges.
