Diagnostic Medical Sonography
The Medical Sonography program is an allied health profession that utilizes computerized medical equipments to generate high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) for diagnostic medical imaging. The Sonographer uses an instrument called a transducer to generate and transmit an incident ultrasound beam to body organs under study. The reflected ultrasound wave (echo) is intercepted by the transducer and converted back into electrical/analog signal. This signal is then digitized and fed to the system computer, which reconstructs and generates images needed for diagnosis.
