According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for cardiac sonographers is excellent, with demand for employment expected to increase 24% by 2018. In Connecticut, a state that both pays well and values skilled and trained medical care, this demand could possibly be much greater.

The top-earning cardiac sonographers in Connecticut are usually employed either in top-tier positions at large care facilities, like the Masonicare Health Center or the Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, or in the offices of very successful cardiologists.
The lowest-earning cardiac sonographers are typically those trained through a one-year certification course, which is no longer a viable way to get into the industry.
