* Students should check the prerequisites for BI204  

This curriculum, accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs, requires a minimum of two years of didactic and clinical experience. It provides a foundation for graduates to become highly skilled in providing patient services using diagnostic ultrasound under the supervision of a physician in hospitals, offices, and other health care settings. Reflected ultrasound waves are utilized by the sonographer to display images of body tissues on a video monitor. The sonographer is responsible for performing the examination, providing patient care, and recording anatomic, pathologic, and/or physiologic data for interpretation by the physician.

Students need to meet prerequisites for first semester courses. Each of the diagnostic medical sonography courses builds upon materials offered in previous courses. Students in this curriculum are required to achieve a grade of C or better in each sonography course and maintain current CPR certification while enrolled in the program.

Upon completion of this curriculum the graduate will receive an A.A.S. and be eligible to sit for the national registry exam, administered by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers, in one or more of the following specialties: abdominal sonography, breast sonography, obstetrics/gynecology sonography, adult echocardiography, pediatric echocardiography, or vascular sonography
