Multispecialty Sonography, AS
Our Sonography Program Will Make You a Vital Part of a Medical Team.
Ultrasonography is an advanced technology that uses sound waves to generate images used for assessment and diagnosis of various medical conditions. The two-year accredited sonography program at NMC provides students with the knowledge and hands-on clinical training to become a certified sonographer.
The curriculum at NMC focuses on different parts of the body. The obstetrics and gynecologic portion focuses on imaging of the female reproductive system and includes one of the more well-known uses of sonography - examining the fetus of a pregnant woman to follow the baby's growth and development.
The abdominal portion of the curriculum involves learning the anatomy of the abdominal cavity to help diagnose and treat conditions primarily involving the aorta, gallbladder, bile ducts, kidneys, liver, pancreas and spleen. During the program you will also focus on the breast, thyroid and male reproductive system.
