    I want to do a degree in health with good pay and an opportunity to work towards higher jobs within the field. More specifically diagnostic radiography. I just wanted to know, what are the prospects and the process after finishing my degree?

    Aaand also wanted to know how exactly do I work towards the sonography consultancy bit?

    Thankyouu !!

    To get into sonography?

    Almost 100% employment in diagnostic radiography. To become a sonographer you'd have to do complete a masters in ultrasound (which is really competitive)

    A masters helps, but I think you work your way up.

      Consultant-grade radiographers are few and far between. It's just a fancy term for a highly specialised radiographer who might focus more on clinical work rather than managerial (superintendent). Only a few departments recognise them. A masters is essential for the role, but so is years of experience.

      As above, a job is 100% guaranteed when you qualify. Just be aware that to do postgraduate ultrasound you need to work somewhere willing to support your training. This won't be an issue, just something you'll want to consider. You may have to work as a radiographer for a year or two if there are no training posts available/there are more senior staff already in line.

      BCU do a BSc in Ultrasound if you're positive you want to go into to that field. Otherwise you would need to do an MSc after completing a diagnostic radiography degree.
