How much does an ultrasound tech make
In the current job market, an ultrasound technician can earn an average salary of $53,000 to $58,000 a year. The median salary for a tech with experience is a bit higher at $64,000 yearly, and the top ten percent can earn as much as $72,000 annually.
People interested in becoming an ultrasound technologist must be able to use complex machines called sonographic scanners. They create images of patients' internal organs that are used to help diagnose medical conditions.
Thanks to high-tech imaging, the San Diego Zoo was able to monitor the pregnancy of panda, Bai Yun, every step of the way. On July 29, 2012, she became the second oldest panda to successfully give birth! Congrats!
