Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: Ferris State University
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Big Rapids, United States
  V

Diagnostic Medical Sonographers use high frequency sound waves to produce images and data that assist health care professionals diagnose various disease and disease processes. Sonographers are taught to work independently and to operate highly technical ultrasound equipment to acquire sonographic images. Physicians depend on the sonographer&,#146,s assistance with interpretation of the images to evaluate many body parts and structures, especially of the abdomen and pelvis.

Students enter the professional sequence of the program in the fall semester and spend the first three semesters on the Big Rapids campus. Studies during this period include general education and technical courses. Laboratory periods provide an opportunity to apply the theory and principles learned in the lecture sessions. During the final three semesters students work with patients in an off-campus clinical center. These sites are located throughout the state in hospitals affiliated with the University to provide clinical experience and continued academic instruction.

Ultrasound technology (Diagnostic Medical Sonography, DMS) is one component of a larger radiological technology sub-specialty in allied health, and one that is growing rapidly for medical diagnosis.

What Does a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer Do?

A diagnostic medical sonographer is a highly-skilled professional who uses specialized equipment to create images of structures inside the human body that are used by physicians to make a medical diagnosis. The process involves placing a small device called a transducer against the patient&,#146,s skin near the body area to be imaged. The transducer works like a loudspeaker and microphone because it can transmit sound and receive sound. The transducer sends a stream of high frequency sound waves into the body that bounce off the structures inside. The transducer detects sound waves as they bounce off the internal structures. Different structures in the body reflect these sound waves differently. These sounds are analyzed by a computer to make an image of the structure(s) on a television screen or that can be...
