About Us

Learn.

Diagnostic Medical Sonographers, also known as Sonographers use high-frequency sound waves to image organs, masses, motion of blood and heart, and fluid accumulations within the body. An ultrasound image results from the reflection of the sound waves by the body. The images/video clips are viewed on a computer screen and are recorded on various formats and are used in interpretation and diagnosis by physicians. The technology is advancing rapidly which requires sonographers to be flexible, adaptable team players who are committed lifelong learners.
