Diagnostic Medical Imaging Program
Sonographers are a key part of the health care team.
Using sophisticated equipment, sonographers produce images of internal body structures that are often startling in their depth and clarity. The images enable physicians to detect and treat heart disease, vascular blockages, gallstones, and other conditions...or monitor the health of a growing fetus. Because it involves no radiation, sonography avoids the possible hazards of some other diagnostic technologies.
Diagnostic Medical Sonography is among the fastest-growing professions in health care.
