The Diagnostic Medical Sonographer program provides the opportunity for students to learn to apply the principles of sonography to produce images of organs, tissues, and small parts of the body using a variety of ultrasound techniques. The program specializes in general sonography (abdominal, small parts, obstetrics and gynecology and introduction to vascular). Students learn to identify subtle differences between healthy and pathological areas of the body in order to work collaboratively with physicians, ensuring images are satisfactory for diagnosis. The program is designed for the student with little or no prior experience in the field.
