Degrees type: Bachelor

Main Campus

Interested in how the human heart works? A career in echocardiography or cardiac sonography might be perfect for you.

Cardiac sonographers help doctors diagnose heart conditions by using an echocardiogram to check how the heart’s chambers and valves are pumping blood through the heart. In the echocardiography program at the Mount, you’ll learn how to use ultrasound equipment to create diagnostic images of the heart and learn how to diagnose abnormal results based on patient history and examination findings.

When you study echo at Mount Aloysius, you’ll learn cardiac sonography using the same machines used in clinics and hospitals. You’ll spend your senior year at clinicals, applying what you’ve learned in the classroom to real patients with the support of your on-campus professors and your clinical instructor.

Cardiac sonographers are in high demand in Pennsylvania! Begin your journey in one of the highest paying imaging specializations today!
