Sonography (ultrasound) is a specialized field of imaging that uses sound waves to produce a computer image. A student in this program studies the clinical aspects of medical sonography and the physical principles of ultrasound. The student also learns to use ultrasound equipment and participates in various supervised sonographic procedures. Each student must choose one of the following areas of emphasis:
- Option A: General Sonography Program; includes imaging of abdominal organs, obstetrics, gynecology, and superficial structures.
- Option B: Cardiovascular Sonography Program; includes echocardiography and vascular imaging.
