What is the difference between Diagnostic Medical Sonography and Ultrasound technician?
I'm interested in being an ultrasound technician, but it seems it may also be called diagnostic medical sonography? I've been trying google but it's confusing me. So whats the difference?

So I would just do general, cardiac or vascular?
