ive been wanting to do something in the medical field for a while now, and i really want to do something with the ultrasound machines. i read online that a diagnostic medical sonographer only does the ultrasounds and a physician does the actual talking with the patient and tells them what’s going on with their bodies. Fukuda Ultrasonic Transducer i want to be the one who does the ultrasound AND tells the patient the good and/or bad news. is that what a ultrasound technician does or would i have to get a degree in ultrasound technology and one to become a physician. or am i totally wrong?Best answer:Answer by alyxsylvr
