The NCMA recognizes the independent user practice of ultrasound. Unlike terms such as Ultrasound Technician, Ultrasound Technologist or Sonographer, we want to focus on the "practitioner" aspect that the job role truly consists of. Our goal is to recognize the true skill-set and knowledge-base Sonologists utilize as a direct provider.
