Why Study Diagnostic Sonography?
Through academic and clinical training, students are prepared for a career as a diagnostic sonographer. Over the course of your studies, you will become proficient in a number of different sonographic techniques, including those required to conduct abdominal, obstetric, gynecological and integrated vascular ultrasounds.
