Cardiac sonographer (also known as echocardiographer, or cardiac ultrasound technologist) is a medical profession of sonographers that specialize in the anatomy and function of the heart. It is a technical job that in the USA has traditionally required an Associates degree in Echo and passing a National Registry exam, but more and more often is requiring a Bachelors degree as the field gets more developed and complicated. Much like how a general sonographer would use sonography (ultrasound) to view a fetus inside a pregnant woman, cardiac sonographers use the same technology to examine and evaluate the heart: chamber sizes, arrangement of the parts, muscle function, valve function and blood flow. Cardiac sonographers typically do not make diagnoses, but rather report all that they find to a cardiologist for further analysis. Salaries range from $20 to $50 an hour.
