Ultrasound Technician Schools In Canada

ultrasound-schools-canada

Diagnostic imaging professionals are in high demand all throughout Canada due to the shortage of trained Ultrasound Diagnostic Technicians. Diagnostic medical sonography or, diagnostic ultrasound technology, involves scanning the human body with high frequency sound and plays a critical role within the health care system by providing physicians with key information that enables the diagnosis and treatment of a wide variety of conditions. If performed incorrectly there is a significant risk of harm to the patient through misdiagnosis and ineffective treatment.

Sonographers are not regulated in any Canadian jurisdiction except the province of Quebec. Consequently a process of national competency certification to verify the knowledge and skills of sonographers provides a vital service to employers, the public and the profession.

There is a severe and ongoing shortage of sonographers in Canada. In the face of this skills shortage and lack of regulation, it is important that a certification registry identify individuals who have knowledge, skills and training relevant to the Canadian workplace.
