We interviewed over 20 sonographers, skipping the small talk in favor of real talk. We asked questions about their profession and its impact on their lives. We delved into defining moments and patients they would never forget, for better or worse. What started out as a single video quickly developed into several as we watched the interviews and realized that the stories, insights and emotions displayed could never adequately be shared in 3 minutes. *
The interviews affirmed that sonography is more than just a transducer and sound waves. It's long hours, it's constant learning, it's innovative technology and advances, it's musculoskeletal pain from being in the same position day after day, it's teaching students and guiding the future of sonography but most of all, it's patients. It's listening to, comforting and supporting each patient that comes in, caring for them as if they were family.
For our Registrants, we hope these videos will encourage you to pause for a moment and reflect on how you would respond. We also hope you will be inspired to share with us your own #RealTalkSonography video!
