The images and technical report are interpreted by the Radiologist in order to provide the patient diagnosis.

Sonographers are employed in the diagnostic imaging department of hospitals or private clinics. They can also be employed as application specialists, sales representatives, research assistants or educators.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography (Diploma)

Course Format: Public Course / Instructor-Led / Open Enrollment
School/Trainer: British Columbia Institute of Technology
Training Center(s): Burnaby, Canada

Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ultrasound) is a rapidly expanding medical technique. A probe (transducer) that is moved over the body to obtain images of various body structures emits high-frequency sound waves. This technique provides valuable diagnostic information regarding the underlying anatomy and pathology that may be present. Unlike X-rays, diagnostic ultrasound is a non-ionizing technique. To date, no significant biological effects have been demonstrated.

A diagnostic medical sonographer is a medical professional who performs ultra sound examinations under the supervision of a physician. Areas of particular interest include the abdomen, the pregnant and non-pregnant female pelvis, the vascular system, and the heart.

More than 200 applications were received for the Diagnostic Medical Sonography program for September 2010. This resulted in a very competitive admission process for only 24 seats.
