Living in NC, there are a few departments in the larger hospitals that are
Sonography or Sonics departments. All types of ultrasound performed in them,
ran by sonographers. There are subspecialties within these departments, such
as the usual, OB-GYN, Vascular, Echocardiography, General and Interventional.
Sounds like a GREAT idea, what do you all think?
