Associate of science in Diagnostic medical sonography

Diagnostic Medical Sonography, or more commonly known as ultrasound technology, is essentially an inside look of the human body using high-frequency sound waves that produces real-time images of organs, tissue and blood flow.  Diagnostic Medical Sonography is essential in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Skilled technicians trained to provide these sneak peaks of the inner workings of the body, play an essential role on the medical team of any hospital, clinic or medical facility.
