Sonographer salary

The salary of a sonographer can vary depending on several factors, including the level of education and experience, the type of employer, and the location of the job. According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the median annual wage for diagnostic medical sonographers was $73,750 in May 2020. The lowest 10% earned less than $50,660, while the highest 10% earned more than $101,480.

Sonographers who have completed a bachelor’s degree in sonography or a related field may have a higher salary than those with only an associate’s degree or a certificate in sonography. Those who have completed a master’s degree may also have a higher salary. In addition, sonographers who have specialized training and experience in a particular area of the body, such as obstetrics or cardiovascular sonography, may have a higher salary than those who are generalists. Finally, sonographers who work in urban or metropolitan areas may have a higher salary than those who work in rural areas, due to the higher cost of living in these areas.
