Cardiovascular Technologists

What are Cardiovascular and Vascular Technicians?

Cardiovascular and vascular technicians help physicians get images of the heart and peripheral circulatory system to diagnose and treat illness and injury therein. Ultrasound is a commonly used technique for gathering these images, but other techniques may be used, depending on the circumstances.

Cardiovascular technicians are most likely to be employed in facilities that specialize in diagnosing and treating illnesses of the heart, veins, arteries, and blood, which include:

  • Hospitals
  • Research laboratories
  • Outpatient care facilities

How Much Do Cardiovascular and Vascular Technicians Earn?

As of May, 2010, the median annual salary for Cardiovascular technologists was $49,410, according to The Bureau of Labor Statistics. It requires at least an associate’s degree to break into this field, and The BLS expects a 29% increase in the number of jobs in the field between 2010 and 2020, which is about twice the growth expected across all careers.
