Sonography is wonderful, but so is radiography. Many excellent sonographers were trained first as Radiologic Technologists. That is because they had to learn about anatomy and medical terminology for both. A certified licensed radiological technologist is a professional who can take images by X-ray, computed tomography, etc. A sonographer starting out as an R.T. has the advantage of already knowing a lot about obtaining diagnostic imaging of patients as well as already having personal experience working with patients. Both are a plus when embarking on learning ultrasound to examine the body.
