Firstly you must do a cousre at university called "radiography" which is a 3 year course that involves the study of X-rays, MRIs etc. You must then specialise in sonography. That answer is not accurate. You do not need to major in radiography to be an ultrasonographer. There are programs out there that are specifically ultrasound majors. They are usually 2-3 years in length. WWW.SDMS.ORG is a very helpful site for sonography schools in various states.

Presently only two states require license. More will follow. Schools and other organizations that promise to educate for your license are misleading. Professional organizations should be referenced in seeking REGISTRATION as ultrasound technologist. Check with the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography and the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography.
