An ultrasound imaging professional in Ireland is called an ultrasonographer, or sonographer for short. Medical professionals use ultrasound to assess foetuses in the womb, diagnose disease and treat certain medical conditions.

Many sonography education pathways are available in Ireland. Students normally earn a three-year degree in radiography and postgraduate certification in medical ultrasound or its equivalent, as recommended by the Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education.
