A sonographer performs specialised diagnostic examinations using high frequency ultrasound (sonography). People may require ultrasound scans for a range of conditions from pregnancy to more complex health conditions as prescribed by their health practitioner.

Patients are referred to a sonography service after consultation with their health practitioner to assist in the diagnosis of a wide number of potential health issues.

The sonographer works with a reporting physician, such as a radiologist or other qualified specialist physician, who has responsibility for supervising the examination, reading and interpreting the results and providing the final report to the referring practitioner.

Sonography can be used to examine many parts of the body. This makes it very useful for diagnosing, and guiding management for a range of medical conditions.
