Cardiovascular Technologist Cardiovascular Technicians use a variety of procedures and instruments to diagnose and treat heart disease and vascular problems. The entry-level technicians perform electrocardiograms (EKGs), and may set up stress tests and Holter monitoring. With their experience and additional training, such technicians can perform more diagnostic tasks, by using sonography and other types of non-invasive procedures as well as advanced life support techniques. INR 6,68,000
Medical Sonographer Medical Sonographers play an important role in non-invasive diagnostics. They perform imaging procedures which use non-ionizing, and high frequency sound waves to create an image when it can be used in place of exploratory surgery or imaging that uses radiation. The common use for sonography is to look at an unborn fetus in prenatal care, but some of Medical Sonographers can also specialize in imaging the abdomen, breasts or brain. Typical duties include preparing patients, explaining the exam, and performing the procedures and reporting the findings to the patient or a physician. Most of the Medical Sonographers work in hospital settings, and are required to stand or walk for long periods of time.  INR 7,00,000
Cardiologist Patients are typically referred to Cardiologists by their regular doctors. Patients may be experiencing symptoms that indicate heart trouble. Cardiologists diagnose and treat heart and blood vessel problems using a combination of symptom review, physical examination, and medical testing. Cardiologists work in private practice centres as consultants to patients' general care practitioners, while some others work for universities as researchers and teachers. INR 16,00,000
Dialysis Technician Dialysis Technicians, often referred to as Patient Care Technicians (PCTs), follow strict protocols to guarantee safe and effective outcomes for patients undergoing this four-hour procedure. They monitor and adjust fluid removal rate according to patients’ vital signs, and minimize the possibility of infection through proper equipment handling and sterilization. INR 5,40,000
Nephrologist Technician Dialysis Biomedical Technicians assist in the treatment of patients who are suffering from end stage renal disease and other illnesses that can cause the kidneys to shut down or improperly function. They work with other team members to complete a variety of tasks including meeting patient needs, operating specialized machines, sanitizing and cleaning tools and equipment, and maintaining medical equipment.
