Cardiovascular Technologist Job Outlook

Even with our economy today there is still a high demand for Medical Sonographers and because of our aging population there is an even higher demand for Cardiac Sonographers. Cardiac abnormalities are more prevalent in elderly patients therefore there is a higher need for people who specialize in heart anomalies. As the baby boomer generation ages, the need for those specialized in cardiac sonography will grow significantly. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics projects job growth for Cardiovascular Technologists to be 24% through 2018. This is significant growth compared to other jobs in the United States and should open up more than 11,000 jobs.
