I'm Jim Williams, I'm a Cardiologist with Capital Cardiovascular Specialist in Austin, Texas. I'm going to talk for a minute or two about the reasons someone might consider becoming a technologist in the field of Cardiology. Cardiology is a growing field, partly because people get older with time and develop heart disease. In fact, the majority of our patients are at least middle age or older. That's a growing population and a very secure profession for many, many people involve in the care of heart patients in different ways and different places in this country; certainly includes myself. But I couldn't do what I do without support personnel. We're highly dependent upon technologists to perform diagnostic studies and assist us with procedures. The procedures we do are fascinating and heart disease is fascinating. I would strongly recommend that anyone who has the kind of interest that I would display; but for some reason doesn't become a physician, be involve in Cardiology in some way, if they are oriented towards the medical field. Cardiac Ultrasound Technologists are highly sought after and some of our highest paid employees as our Nuclear Medicine Cardiologist Technologists. There are excellent jobs available in Cardiac Cath Labs for very interesting procedures are perform everyday. This is what I would do if I didn't do what I do now.
