We tell our students that a technician knows what buttons to push; a technologist knows why.

I've always felt comfortable being a tech, but I understand the push for "sonographer." Our field has always suffered from being too little understood and respected.

In my previous life as an RT, Technologist was define as specialist technician was an aid or some one who needed supervision to perform their functions. I am proud to be a technologist or a sonographer, but I'm with Kerrie I don't think sonographer means more to anyone else

I am proud to be called a technologist.  I never felt as though a "sonographer" had any more clout than a "technologist".  I think the tech abbreviation leads people to think technician. So when asked what I do, outside of talk with my fellow techs, I always say vascular technologist  :-)

Besides isn't it what you know that is important rather than how people may perceive you based on a title?

  I always thought it was just different titles for different areas of work.  Sorta like echo, sonogram, ultrasound...ect. mean the same basic thing.  Maybe I'm just naive.

If you go to a good school and received a Bachelors then went on to pass  the registry why are you "just a tech"??  last time I looked RVTs image bodily organs.  Thats why people have different creditials to make sure people are given proper credit for what they accomplish.
