Sonography offers better career prospects and brilliant opportunities for aspiring sonographers in order to diagnose and treat multitude of body conditions. High quality ultrasound equipments are been utilized in order to receive images of internal organs that would otherwise be inaccessible without surgery. Although most Sonography schools offer training in all areas of the body, professional sonographers typically choose a specialty and spend their careers focusing on one particular area of the body.

Abdomen: Is utilized to examine the organs in the abdominal area of the body such as the liver and spleen, gallbladder, kidney and pancreas as well as the abdominal aorta and all other blood vessels of the abdomen.

Breast: It helps examine the health of breast tissue. Breast sonographers can isolate internal problems due to blocked or damaged milk ducts, cysts or tumor growth.
