Ultrasound Technician An ultrasound technician performs medical diagnosis using high frequency sound waves and imaging techniques to generate images of cross sections of organs. Technicians most times work under the direction of a radiologist.(A medical specialist who uses radioactive substances and X-rays in the treatment of disease.)
Safe Option for Future Ultrasound is safe and has no side effects. It allows for safer procedures involving a needle, catheter by acting as a visual aide. Ultrasound is inexpensive and available to most all health care. Ultrasound is better than X-rays, soft tissue is not seen very well. Ultrasound has become essential.
Salary, Security, Benefits The annual average ultrasound tech salary was $66,360, or $31.90 per hour in 2012, and this was based on a 40-hour working week. Job Security for ultrasound technicians is well preserved even during economic downtimes, the need for ultrasound technicians has increased year by year. This is because ultrasound is a main way to observe what is wrong with a patient. This means that no matter how bad the economy gets, or how many jobs are lost, ultrasound technicians are secure.
Possible Risks for Future Fetal ultrasound. Therefore, prior studies suggesting that ultrasound is not dangerous for an unborn baby Some studies suggest the procedure may contribute to slower fetal growth and other problems while others show that routine prenatal ultrasound provides no benefit in normal pregnancies and may lead to a high number of babies being falsely diagnosed as high-risk. This scenario leads to a cycle of over-testing and elevated stress for the mother other family members in cases that would otherwise be treated as normal pregnancies. Particular concern has been raised about the effects of Doppler ultrasound on an unborn baby because Doppler uses continuous waves rather than intermittent pulses and thus causes greater exposure when compared with conventional ultrasound.
Guarantee for future There is every reason to assume that diagnostic medical ultrasound will continue to be an essential tool in medicine. Technological advances are creating faster, lighter machines with more memory, and new transducer probe designs will result in better tissue access and images. Choosing a career in diagnostic medical sonography brings with it the opportunity to contribute to even more effective diagnosis and successful treatment of patients in the future.
Existential Therapist Existential psychotherapy is a philosophical method of therapy that operates on the belief that inner conflict within a person is due to that individual's confrontation with the givens of existence. Also referred to as ultimate concerns, form the body of existential psychotherapy and compose the framework in which a therapist puts together a client's problem in order to develop a method of treatment. These ideas come from the four dimensions of human existence, the physical, social, personal and spiritual.
Salary, Security, and Benefis Existential therapists typically earn $53,000 a year. But this is completely dependent on the patient and the circumstance. Wage could depend on the experience of the therapist.
Radiologic Technologist A radiologic technologist, also known as medical radiation technologist, and as radiographer, performs imaging of the human body for diagnosis or treating medical problems. Radiologic techs work in hospitals, clinics, and private practice. Better known as an X-ray technician.
Radiologic Technologists earn about $64,000 a year.
