What is Diagnostic Medical Sonography?

Diagnostic medical sonography utilizes high frequency sound waves to produce dynamic visual images of organs, tissues, or blood flow inside the body. These images aid physicians in their diagnosis of the patient.

Sonographers typically work closely with patients and radiologists in clinical health-care settings, including medical centers, medical clinics, and physicians’ offices.

The Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Ultrasound) program at the Platt School of Medical Sciences is designed to prepare graduates to pursue careers in Sonography, a dynamic specialty area in the rapidly-expanding health care field. Upon successful completion of foundational coursework and a clinical externship, graduates of the program are awarded an Associate or Bachelor of Science degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography.

The American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) offers examinations to become a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer.  To learn more about ARDMS prerequisites for examination eligibility, click here:  http://www.ardms.org/downloads/prerequisite_chart.pdf
