Travel Echo Tech FAQs

What are the best agencies for Echo Tech jobs?

The agencies on Vivian that currently have the most Echo Tech jobs are OneStaff Medical (99), Anders Group (82), and MedPro Healthcare Allied Staffing (74).

What is an Echo Tech?

Echo techs, also known as echocardiograph technicians, are allied health professionals who specialize in conducting diagnostic exams with an echocardiogram to create live images of patients’ hearts. They play an essential role in helping doctors diagnose and treat a variety of heart ailments. This is a skilled position full of mental stimulation that provides valuable information about patient care, which many healthcare professionals find rewarding. 

Because echo techs are highly specialized diagnostic sonographers, they’re in high demand. Their demand is expected to continue growing due to rapidly advancing medical technology and techniques and an aging population with increased needs for detailed cardiac testing.

What does an echo tech do?

Echo techs, sometimes referred to as echocardiographers, cardiographers, or cardiac sonographers are ultrasound techs or sonographers who’ve specialized in the use of echocardiogram technology. Their primary responsibility is gathering data and assessing the image quality that doctors use to diagnose heart disease. They do this with ultrasound devices that use sound waves and other imaging tools to create images of the heart. Common tasks include:

  • Explaining procedures to patients

  • Performing echocardiograms on a patient’s chest

  • Assisting in placing a tube down a patient’s esophagus to get closer, internal views of the heart, also known as a trans-esophageal echo or TEE

  • Performing all two-dimensional echoes, M-mode, and Doppler studies

  • Inspecting  and assessing heart walls, chambers, and valves

  • Analyzing blood flow through veins, arteries, chambers, and valves

  • Obtaining clear images of patients’ heart structures and blood flow patterns

  • Delivering echocardiograms and other gathered information to patients’ physicians

  • Assisting physicians/cardiologists with more complex procedures involving ultrasound

  • Maintaining and calibrating medical diagnostic imaging machines

Echo techs also may insert IVs and inject contrast if this practice is allowed in their facility/state and there’s limited availability of nurses. They also may perform echocardiography stress tests on patients. These tests help determine how well a patient’s heart and blood vessels are working and whether heart muscles are receiving enough blood and oxygen during exercise. Doctors may also request stress tests to determine how well antiarrhythmic or anti-anginal medications, angioplasty, bypass grafting, or other treatments are working.

Where do echo techs work?

Many echo techs work in general medical and surgical hospitals. Other popular places of employment include medical and diagnostic laboratories, diagnostic imaging centers, and private clinics that specialize in cardiology. They also may be employed at physician’s offices and outpatient care centers, or by various medical, radiographic, and ultrasound diagnostic providers. Some echo techs specialize in pediatric cardiac technologies and take jobs working with children at children’s hospitals or pediatrician offices.

What skills make a good echo tech?

Good echo techs are extremely tech-savvy with advanced knowledge of sophisticated machinery used to administer crucial tests on the heart. They fully understand the operation of the heart, including the functions of vessels, valves, and chambers. Echo techs are detail-oriented with keen observational skills to effectively capture ultrasound pictures that demonstrate whether each part of the heart is working properly and to accurately assess and identify any problems in patients’ echocardiograms.

Good echo techs have top-notch interpersonal skills, which help them with their daily interactions with patients, doctors, and other healthcare providers. This includes superb communication skills that allow them to effectively explain procedures to patients and keep them calm during exams. They’re also highly adaptable, allowing them to easily adjust to changes in medical equipment due to never-ending technological advances.

How to become a Travel Echo Tech

Allied health professionals already trained in another healthcare field may complete a one-year certificate program to become a sonographer. Anyone new to the healthcare field must earn an associate or a bachelor’s degree in cardiac sonography through a sonography training program accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs. Because echo techs deal with heart patients, employers often require them to have Basic Life Support certification.

Professional certification for echo techs is mostly voluntary, but many employers prefer candidates who’ve proven their abilities through certification. Technicians must pass a qualifying exam for certification, which may fulfill licensing requirements in states that require licensure. Currently, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oregon mandate licensure of medical sonographers and other imaging allied health professionals. Echo techs can pursue Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer credentials from the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Cardiac Ultrasound Echocardiography Certification from Cardiovascular Credentialing International.
