Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Certificate)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: Cosumnes River College
Training Center(s)/Venue(s): Sacramento, United States

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...
