You can't hear it, but ultrasound is calling for you.

This site, Medical Career Training reminds of the drama series Heroes, where the lead character, Peter Petrelli is a nurse. It is getting more common to find male nurse. Indeed, it is not only in the nursing profession, but the in the field of medical careers, which is one of the fastest growing areas of employment today.

Medical career is not restricted only to physicians and nurses, but also consists of many other roles since a number of sophisticated medical instruments, such as Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), require a team of qualified people to operate them. Of these, one interesting career is to be a Sonographer, by getting trained in an ultrasound technician school.

Sonographers use special equipment to direct sound waves into areas of a patient's body. Ultrasonographers properly operate the ultrasound equipment, which forms an image that may be videotaped, transmitted, or photographed for diagnosis and/or interpretation by a physician. Sonography is becoming increasingly attractive as patients seek safer treatment options, and sonography provides an alternative to radiology procedures.

I am also in the medical industry, as a technical researcher, mainly dealing with CT and MRI images. Ultrasound is a much easier, safer and faster way of medical imaging than CT and MRI.

You can check out where are these ultrasound tech schools from the site and other details. They categorize them according to which state there are in, and also a list of online schools.
