SONOCON 2023 is just around the corner and will be held at the Halifax Convention Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia from September 29 through October 1, 2023. The conference will focus on current trends and developments in the field of diagnostic medical sonography and will provide opportunities for networking for professional sonographers. SONOCON 2023 will be hosted by Sonography Canada/Echographie Canada and will feature workshops, awards presentations and two keynote speakers to provide insights into the field of sonography.
This national conference is a must for medical sonographers in Canada and will allow these professionals to stay current with the very latest developments and the emerging future of sonography as a diagnostic tool. For those who cannot make it to the conference in person, some events will be available online during or after SONOCON 2023 has concluded.
The Future of Sonography
Ultrasound technologies will continue to evolve over the next few years. A few factors are expected to play a major role in changing workflows and best practices in the sonography field:
- Expanded training for medical professionals: Because sonography is integral to the diagnostic process for many conditions, most experts agree that ultrasound training will be incorporated as part of most medical degree programs to a larger extent in upcoming years.
- Miniaturization: Handheld sonography equipment is already in use in some areas and can make it much easier to manage health care for patients. These devices will likely become even smaller and more portable in the future.
- Artificial intelligence: AI will also have an impact on many sonography jobs in Canada. A working knowledge of AI-driven medical technologies will often improve opportunities for candidates in health care staffing scenarios.
The presentations and keynote addresses at SONOCON 2023 are likely to touch on these topics as well as other emerging trends in the field of ultrasound technologies and sonography.
Sonography Jobs and Opportunities
At ProMed HR Solutions, we understand the challenges and needs of sonographers and other medical professionals. Diagnostic medical sonographers are tasked with using advanced imaging equipment to create ultrasound images that can be used to evaluate the physical condition of patients in the clinical setting. Sonographers must undergo extensive training through an accredited diagnostic medical sonography program in Canada. During their education, students can specialize in cardiac or vascular sonography or can complete a general sonography training program.
During a typical day, a sonographer may perform a dozen ultrasound scans in a hospital, clinic or private practice environment. Most sonographers work eight-hour shifts and must complete paperwork on each of the scans they perform. Ultrasound imaging is used to assess the condition of organs inside the body and is a safe and non-invasive way to diagnose many internal issues.
Why SONOCON 2023 Is Vital to the Industry
Along with the numerous opportunities to learn more about modern sonography and current trends in ultrasound technology, SONOCON 2023 will also provide plenty of chances for medical professionals to touch base with staffing agencies and organizations dedicated to this essential health care field. Workshops and sessions for this event will cover the following topics:
- Mental health for sonographers
- Ultrasound assessment of carpal tunnel and the median nerve
- A hands-on look at a carotid ultrasound
- Ultrasound of the bowel
- Diagnosing diffuse liver disease
- Fetal cardiac imaging
- Elbow sonography
The free exchange of ideas among sonography professionals is essential to promote innovation and progress in this medical specialty. By attending SONOCON 2023, administrators and medical professionals can share their insights and can help in building a better tomorrow for patients, personnel and organizations in the health care industry.
